FCI, Danbury was put on the map thanks to Piper Kerman who served her time there and wrote the memoir Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison
that inspired Netflix's prison dramedy.
(Though Taylor Schilling's Piper Chapman serves at a fictional institution called Litchfield.) Lauryn Hill was also in Danbury for a three-month sentence for tax evasion. She was released from the prison camp on Friday, Oct. 3.
