Otis Bantum Correctional Center is a women’s prison in Otis, Georgia. As a young woman, I was one of the few white students in the class of 1995 (it wasn’t until the mid-90s that there was a black woman in a women’s prison in Georgia). The prison was established in 1994, and for the first six years was used for women who were serving time in the Georgia Department of Corrections (GDOC).
During that time, women who were serving time in the GDOC were housed at Otis, a halfway house. Otis also housed men who were incarcerated for various reasons, some of whom had served time in the GDOC for a long time.
Otis was actually the name of an African-American woman who had been imprisoned at Otis. Otis was originally intended for African-American offenders, but as the prison grew, the decision to change the name to Otis Bantum Correctional Center was made. Otis Bantum is now the only privately run female correctional facility in the country.
Otis Bantum was founded in 2010 and is run by the United States Department of Corrections. They are currently housing about 120 men at their prison.
Otis Bantum is a private prison that houses African-American offenders as well as men from other backgrounds and countries. The inmates are housed in several wings that vary from low to medium security, and the staff is predominately African-American.
Otis Bantum has been in operation for over a year, and it is unclear how much time they have left. However, they have a lot of potential.
Otis Bantum is one of 10 prisons in the country that houses women inmates, and their women are housed in one wing. They are currently housing about 120 women, and the facility has a lot of the same features as the men’s wing.
The women prisoners have the same standard of living as their male counterparts, except they are more likely to be housed in segregated areas than their male counterparts. The women are more likely to be housed in a wing that is smaller and more isolated from the rest of the prison. The women prisoners are also less likely to have access to outside services than the men are.
While I think the women’s wing looks pretty cool, the men’s wing is a little more depressing. I’m not sure if it’s a gender thing or just the nature of the men, but it does seem like the men’s wing has a much higher rate of suicide.
I’m not sure about the “seem to have,” but I have to admit it does get pretty depressing when you’re forced to sleep in a cell with a bunch of men in a place where it is very likely that they will do something terrible to you, even if they are not in the same room.
