Harpham Transported To Federal Prison In Northern California

KHQ.COM - According to the Bureau of Federal Prisons, Kevin Harpham has been transported to FCI Herlong.

The Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) Herlong is a medium security institution housing male inmates, with a satellite camp that houses minimum security male inmates.

The facility is located in the Sierra highlands of northern California, 50 miles northwest of Reno, NV, and about 30 miles southeast of Susanville, CA.

Harpham will spend 32 years in prison. The Judge ordered Harpham to the maximum sentence as specified in a plea deal reached by Harpham's defense and prosecution earlier in the year.

Harpham unsuccessfully tried to withdraw his plea hours before he was sentenced. His defense questioned whether the explosive device in question met the legal definition of a bomb.

"I am not guilty of the acts that I am accused of and that I plead guilty to," said Harpham.

In September, Harpham pleaded guilty to planting the backpack bomb. But earlier Tuesday, Harpham sought a withdrawal of that guilty plea.

Once released, Harpham will be supervised for life. Harpham must complete any mental health counseling once released. Plus his home and vehicles will be subject to search without a search warrant once he's released.
