jail in which he was being held.

The Newsday article states that Brooks is now being housed in a federal detention facility in Queens, New York.

Brooks is currently on trial in federal district court in Central Islip, Long Island, New York, accused of illegally using funds from publicly-traded DHB Industries to finance personal expenditures.
