Drew Peterson has been transferred to Menard Correctional Center in Chester, Illinois.
The facility in downstate Illinois has the worst inmate-to-staff ratio of all Illinois’ maximum-security facilities, as well as that of several medium and high-minimum security facilities.
Over the last year and a half, Menard was on full or partial lockdown roughly half of the time.
Menard is currently on lockdown status and no visitors are allowed. According to a tweet by Stacy St. Clair the current lockdown is due to an attack on a staff member.
