Don C. Weir Locked up at Medium-Security Penitentiary in Illinois, Not Satellite Camp


Many readers have been asking: Where in the world is Don C. Weir, the Town & Country financial advisor who stole $12 million in precious-metal coin investments from dozens of clients? (Check out our feature, "Plot of Gold").

According to the Bureau of Prisons' inmate locator page, Mr. Weir is currently incarcerated at a medium-security federal penitentiary in Marion, Illinois. This is not where his attorney, N. Scott "Free" Rosenblum, had requested Weir do his time.

At the September 30 sentencing, Rosenblum asked Judge Rodney Sippel to recommend a minimum-security camp in Yankton, South Dakota. The judge agreed to do so, but apparently, camp wasn't in the cards.

For the past month at least, Weir had been listed by the Bureau of Prisons as "IN TRANSIT."
