Renner, 55, was sentenced in May to 18 months for income-tax evasion. He was indicted in September 2008 and convicted in December 2009.
The Duluth FPC is a “minimum security” facility located at the former Duluth Air Force Base. FPCs have “dormitory housing, a relatively low staff-to-inmate ratio, and limited or no perimeter fencing,” according to the FBP. “These institutions are work- and program-oriented; and many are located adjacent to larger institutions or on military bases, where inmates help serve the labor needs of the larger institution or base.”
Renner was listed last week as in the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service and “in transit” to an unnamed federal facility. For security reasons, there may be lag time between when a federal prisoner is being transported to a facility and when he or she is listed as an inmate at a specific facility.
As of this morning, Renner was listed as Inmate No. 14166-041 at FPC Duluth. Renner’s conviction occurred prior to allegations by the U.S. Secret Service that he was operating a Ponzi scheme through INetGlobal and related businesses.
A federal probe into Renner’s business practices continues. He has not been charged with a crime, and has denied wrongdoing.
