Since the conviction was in federal court, the bop can assign him to any one of their prisons, or even to one of the privately owned prisons where they rent cells for their inmates. The current law states that the bop must attempt to place prisoners within 500 miles of their homes, but since there are no penalties when they don't, they don't try very hard. I was never closer than 1300 miles from home even though there were countless other options available that would have complied with the law..
