CLEVELAND — Cuyahoga County Sheriff Frank Bova says Ariel Castro will be transferred from Cleveland to the Lorain Correctional Institution Friday afternoon.
The transfer comes one day after Castro was sentenced to life without parole plus 1,000 years in prison for abducting three women and holding them captive in his Seymour Avenue home for a decade.
A spokeswoman for Ohio’s prisons department says Ariel Castro won’t go into general population once he enters the state’s prison system because of his high-profile case and for his own protection.
Castro will undergo medical and mental health evaluations after arriving in prison.
