The Federal Correctional Institution, Oxford (FCI Oxford) is a medium-security United States federal prison for male inmates in Wisconsin. It is operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, a division of the United States Department of Justice. The facility also has an adjacent satellite prison camp that houses minimum-security male offenders.
Although rarer than in state prisons or high-security federal prisons, serious incidents of violence do occur at low and medium-security federal prisons such as FCI Oxford. On June 21, 2011, Timothy Washington, a 48-year-old inmate serving a sentence for drug trafficking stabbed another inmate with a homemade prison weapon known as a shank. The victim, who the Bureau of Prisons did not identify, suffered 16 stab wounds, but survived the assault. Washington pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon in February 2012 and was sentenced to an additional 33 months in prison. He was transferred to a high-security facility and is scheduled for release in 2026.
