The Federal Prison Camp, Bryan (FPC Bryan) is a minimum-security United States federal prison for female inmates in Texas. It is operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, a division of the United States Department of Justice.

FPC Bryan is located 95 miles northwest of Houston and 165 miles south of Dallas.[1]

Facility and inmate life[edit]

After the American track star Marion Jones was sentenced to federal prison in 2008, an article was published on BleacherReport.com, a sports website owned by CNN, which named FPC Bryan as one of the prisons Jones might possibly be sent to and detailing life there. The article cited accounts of FPC Bryan provided on Prisontalk.com, a portal used by a large number of women who have been in federal prisons.

There are between 800 and 1,100 women at FPC Bryan at any given time. Of these 1,100 women only about 200 have a GED or high school diploma, and of those 200 only half have education above high school. The average age is about 32.
