Vanity Prisoner Numbers

Posted: May 6, 2014 in Bureau of Prisons

Now that my sentencing is complete, I’ve been able to move on to more important things in life like praying to Baby Jesus that I would be assigned a sweet vanity prisoner number.

I had asked him for either 11111-111 or 12345-678 (I did my research and saw that neither were taken yet).

I’m guessing the Bureau of Prisons intentionally does not give out prisoner numbers that are *too* awesome, but either way, I did get one that is pretty choice. This is something that even *I* can remember…


For the nerds out there, it looks like you can pull federal prisoner data programmatically via JSON. Here’s mine:

    You’re only 38? I thought you were born in ’74

    1975 🙂

  3. Kintaro says:

    I can’t add you on CorrLinks with Identification Code 13411111… maybe we have to wait the “date”? 😀

      Beats me… although it would make sense to only be able to add people that are in the big house.
