Editor’s Note: This story was updated on April 4th to reflect some new information about Keith Raniere’s incarceration at the Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma City, OK. Portions of the original story were based on the assumption that he was being housed in the adjacent Grady County facility, which is also used for federal prisoners who, like Raniere, are “in transit”.
Keith Raniere – accused of sex trafficking and forced labor – is being held at The Federal Transfer Center (FTC) in Oklahoma City according to public records.
The FTC is a United States federal prison for male and female inmates who are in the midst of being transferred to some other prison facility.
It is also Keith Raniere’s home, for now.
Located at 7410 South MacArthur Boulevard, its inmate population is about 1,400, one of whom is Keith Alan Raniere, who is known to his followers as Vanguard.
Raniere will be housed in a 2-man cell that will be locked during the overnight hours (10:00 PM – 6:00 AM). Each cell has a set of bunk beds – and a combination sink/toilet. There is zero privacy inside these cells.
Each unit has a “common area” where prisoners can hang out when they are not locked in their cells. And each unit also has a couple of TV rooms that are generally controlled by different segments of the prisoners in that unit (Black prisoners, Latino prisoners, etc.). There is no separate TV room for former cult leaders who preferred to be called Vanguard or for guys who think branding women is just “good clean fun”.
Except for a few “cadre” prisoners who operate the kitchen and serves as janitors, the FTC facility only houses prisoners who are headed somewhere else. As a result, there is no commissary and even few amenities than regular federal prisons.
The facility is used to house prisoners awaiting transfer. It is managed by the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
There is no published date for Raniere’s next court appearance, which will be in Brooklyn.
The U.S. Marshals Service often uses buses to transport persons in custody across the United States. The process can take days to take a defendant to another jurisdiction. Restroom stops and food are irregular.
Keith Raniere is now a federal inmate. His register number is 57005-177.For those wishing to send money for Raniere’s commissary, or express concern about his treatment, go to the Inmate Locator and follow instructions.
Mugshots are considered the property of the federal government and are not publicly available. The photo below of Raniere was taken at the time of his arrest and gives readers a look at the present Raniere who may safely be said to be looking forward to a life of incarceration and taking orders from prison guards with IQs that may be higher than his own.
He wanted to make women slaves and is, in effect, a slave himself and likely to remain a slave indefinitely.
One of our readers with a poetic bent submitted the following:
By the time I get to Monterrey
She’ll be rising
She’ll find the collateral I left hanging on her door
She’ll laugh, when she reads the part that says I’m having death threats
Cause I’ve lied to that girl, so many times before
By the time I make Fort Worth
She’ll be working
She’ll probably stop at lunch,
And give me a call
But she’ll just hear that prison phone keep on ringing
Off the wall, that’s all
By the time I make Oklahoma
She’ll be sleeping
She’ll turn softly and call my name out low
And she’ll cry, just to think, I’m really in the Federal Prisoner Transfer Center
Though time and time I’ve tried to tell her so
She just didn’t know,
I would really go

Has it sunken in yet? You know, the part about you being brainwashed. Or are you still in denial? Just ask yourself…Is it possible?

What happened to this is all a misunderstanding and he will be set free in a few hours Mexico ESP? It’s been 5 days, 5 great days. It’s like watching the end of the Wizard of Oz and water has just been poured on the Wicked Witch of the West.
I’m here once a week on business .. interesting. They’ll be transferring him out on a few weeks.. if Clinton doesn’t get to him first. That’s not a real secure prison.
So Keith Raniere is important enough to warrant attention (and more?) from Clinton? That will make his huge ego happy.
Crazy people like you belong in cults. I hear NXIVM is looking for new members.
Mail to the Vanguard can be sent to the following address:
Keith Alan Raniere
P.O. Box 898801
Oklahoma City, OK 73189-8801
I am certain the Vanguard would appreciate correspondence from Frank Report readers. Since all of the Flying Monkeys’ wings have yet to be clipped, I would suggest not using one’s actual home address.
Personally, I would like to ask Keith what stellar study habits he utilized at RPI in order to attain that gaudy 2.26 GPA.
Can someone please refresh my memory, what’s the names of the two NT institutions that will be Raniere’s new home? One was 90% likely to house him. TIA!
NY not NT. MDC Brooklyn and MCC NY
Rules for the “Vanguard” to live by
fascinating. Hope Keith gets time to savour all thats on offer, no volleyball but you can’t have everything. Also I see that even though they offer comprehensive psych. support, ie, for allegations of sexual assault and provide a rape-crisis helpline, unfortunately its a toll-free 1-800 number and those are verboten under the rules concerning telephone use. Plenty of riddle-me-re type shit here for his rational, inquiring mind to ponder over.
I just know Sara Bronfman is hammering that Send Money link.
I think the prison guards do need to be aware that he might try and hypnotize the inmates. Charles Manson did apparently.
I thought you were going to say he might try to hypnotize the guards. Probably both the inmates and the guards.
“Raniere will live with about 200 other male prisoners in a large room. Prisoners, eat, sleep and reside in the room and sleep on bunk beds stacked three levels high.”
Keith will become quite well acquainted with those 199 men. And they with him.
Maybe he’ll teach an intensive? Captive audience. And good chance Keith’s in Oklahoma City long enough for one.
I’m sure the prison chef will be happy to accommodate Keith’s organic vegan requirements.
Not for nothing, but prisons should probably honor vegetarian and vegan diets. I’m neither, but even if you can’t provide tasty foods that are vegan or vegetarian, you should at least honor anyone’s decision not to eat meat or meat by products.
Imagine if at GitMo or in a prison in Iraq if we made the inmates eat pork. I mean, maybe we did… but it is a bad thing to do.
