The Federal Bureau of Prison's handbook for the Oakdale low-security prisonwhere it's believed Nagin will serve his sentence details the conditions and expectations inmates face when they arrive: lights on at 5:30 a.m., breakfast at 6, report to work stations at 730, lunch from 11-12, back to work and then dinner at 4. Visitors are only allowed on weekends and federal holidays, and Nagin may get a sought-after job like maintenance or food service, though such jobs are not a guarantee.

Former Insurance Commissioner Jim Brown spent his six-month sentence for lying to FBI agents at the Oakdale low-security facility and blogged about his time time there.
