Hoffman has been placed in a protective custody unit — outside the general population — according to Meredith Rinna, public information officer for TCI. The unit is designed to house offenders in high-profile cases and those who have had threats made against them from someone inside the facility or threats made from citizens outside the corrections department.
As of Jan. 1, the facility housed just under 2,000 inmates with over 900 of them in close security, like Hoffman. About 110 inmates are considered minimum or medium security and about 70 are maximum security.
Hoffman, who pleaded guilty on Jan. 6, to three counts of aggravated murder and abuse of a corpse; and one count each of aggravated burglary, rape, and tampering with evidence, will stay in the protective custody unit during the duration of his life sentence.
