Federal Correctional Institution, Milan
near Milan, Michigan
|Managed by||Federal Bureau of Prisons|
The Federal Correctional Institution, Milan (FCI Milan) is a low-security United States federal prison for male inmates in Michigan. It is operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, a division of the United States Department of Justice.
FCI Milan is located in southeastern Michigan, 45 miles south of Detroit, 15 miles south of Ann Arbor, and 30 miles north of Toledo, Ohio.
FCI Milan was activated on April 6, 1933, as a "Federal Detention Farm" and has undergone mission changes throughout its history. FCI Milan held female inmates from 1933 to 1939, housed offenders sentenced under the Federal Youth Corrections Act of 1950, and was once a medium-security institution. The only federal execution in Michigan occurred on July 8, 1938, when Anthony Chebatoris was hanged for the murder of Henry Porter, a truck driver from Bay City, who Chebatoris mistook for a police officer during a bank robbery.
Helen Gillis and Evelyn Frechette, the wives of notorious bank robbers Baby Face Nelson and John Dillinger, served one-year sentences at FCI Milan in the mid-1930s after being convicted of aiding their husbands evade authorities.
Facility and inmate programs 
FCI Milan covers 300 acres (120 ha) and offers a Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP), which offers inmates completing its 500-hour residential program up to a 12-month sentence reduction and up to six months in a halfway house. There are very strict guidelines for admission due to the program's popularity.
The Life Connections Program (LCP) is an 18-month residential voluntary multi-faith restorative justice program which is offered in only four other federal prisons. The program is designed to reduce recidivism and bring reconciliation to the victim, community and inmate through personal transformation using the participant's faith commitment.
FCI Milan offers a unique program in federal prisons in conjunction with Milan High School where inmates can earn a high school diploma, the only federal prison which has a high school diploma program.
