Villagomez Assigned to a Prison Facility

September 16, 2009


Convicted felon, former Lt. Governor Timothy Villagomez has been assigned to the Federal Corrections Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. From the Bureau of Federal Prisons:
The Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) in Phoenix, Arizona is a medium security facility for male offenders. An adjacent satellite prison camp houses minimum security female offenders.

FCI Phoenix is located approximately 25 miles north of downtown Phoenix, off Interstate 17 (Black Canyon Freeway) at the Pioneer Road Exit (Exit 225)
Timothy Villagomez was sentenced to seven years and three months in prison for his involvement in the Rydlyme corruption scandal. His sister, Joaquina Santos and her husband, James Santos were sentenced to six years and six months in prison each for their involvement in defrauding CUC and the federal government. All three are appealing.

Joaquina Santos, sister of Villagomez, remains listed as "in transit" on the Department of Justice inmate locator web site.

James Santos, her husband is now an inmate at the Victorville Federal Penitentiary in Adelanto, California. It is a high security facility about 85 miles north of Los Angeles with about 950 inmates. The Santos couple's release dates are both listed as April 21, 2015, while Timothy Villagomez's is listed as December 17, 2015.

He could have done a lot worse and it would be nice if his sister could be incarcerated in the adjacent woman's facility. The climate is high desert and, because Phoenix is a large metropolitan area, there maybe be some Chamolinians or other Pacific Islanders nearby. . All in all, he lucked out and I wish him the best!Somehow I have the impression that others will follow quite soon. As a friend says "stay Taned".

Too harsh for a non violent criminal. They should be sent to a 'camp' not medium security prison with murderers as cell mates. Hey on a lighter note, liberal democratic ACORN staffers have been busy educating people on prostitution and even child smuggling and molestation!

No prison time for these poor sick people?

I can't figure out why James Santos is in a high security facility. I don't think they belong in "camp" but they certainly don't belong in "high" security.

No they don't. Was James a repeat offender for something? That may be why. Still way to harsh of sentences and prison facilities. Over the top. Their families should be outraged.

Nobody knows what happened in route, is it a possibility James stopped cooperating or made some problems. It it also possible that this is only a temporary place until "space" becomes available at another location.

What difference would it make for Tim's sister to be "next door" Would there be any visiting each other????

Well they are in the real world now.This is not "their place" now. Hopefully the NMI will be changed for the better by the time they get out.The "connected" will be out of power and many will be back home with good jobs.

At least they got 24 hours of water and power.

To anon 10:53 I doubt that they will be able to visit each other , but family members and friends who want to visit only have to travel to one destination to visit Tim and Kinai. James is not too far away. The last anon makes a good point.....24/7 power and water is an upgrade for most of us! Also,they are getting three free meals a day at no cost to themselves and will have plenty of quiet time to think about their misdeeds!

To 9:49 "Their families should be outraged"
Yes, their families should be outraged that these people brought further shame to their families and the NMI by their actions of deceit and fraud among other criminal activities.
The families have no say in where they go or how are how they are treated.
This is not the CNMI "jail" facilities where family name counts for something and gets "extras"
They would not have been prosecuted in the NMI if the Feds did not step in, they would have continued doing their illegal activities as long as they could..

Just wondering, was Tim V. relocated to TUSCON USP a high security institution? If so, I wonder why the relocation to a higher security facility.

Is there a low-security camp on the premises?
