Thank you for using JustAnswer!
To answer your question, no, the prison will not care at all.
This is not a matter that an attorney can request/get court approval on.
Any transfer to a different facility will solely come from working on the inside.
And, again, family convenience / his person business are consideration which prison officials simply do not care about or take into account.

Then they will never get the $15,000+ in restitution. Also he has 2 family members who can not for medical reasons make the long 4hr drive in the middle of no place to visit him. His mother & a sister. Even if they get medical letters? I did think that the prison likely would not care about any of this but figured possibly a lawyer could get it done.
Unfortunately, lawyers do not have magic wands either :)
The prison is solely concerned with managing the population as safely as possible. That's its core function.
He can make requests for transfer; however, there is no legal leverage that can be used to force it.
That was my thought as well. They are doing a job & could care less for the people they get paid to watch lol Darn no magic wand ;) Thanks!
