Denise Simmons, public information officer for the Butner prison complex, said yesterday that Stanford isn't at that facility. Simmons said she couldn't comment on whether his arrival is expected.

Madoff, who had been in the prison's hospital unit in 2009, has since returned to the general population of one of Butner's two medium-security units, Simmons said.

Trish Doty, public information officer at the Federal Detention Center in Houston, said Stanford's personal belongings and legal papers are being stored in her office until Stanford returns from drug rehab. Doty declined to identify the prison hospital that will treat Stanford.

"Whenever an inmate is out temporarily, we store their property because we know they're coming back," she said.

The case is U.S. v. Stanford, 09cr342, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Texas (Houston).
