Marshals Transfer Sanders to Federal Prison

57-year-old Thomas Steven Sanders of Las Vegas was in the custody of federal marshals today, though not inside a courtroom. It’s standard procedure to transfer inmates once they’re condemned to death to one of the federal prisons designated for these kinds of convicts. The Pollock facility is not one that handles those who’ve been sentenced to die.

No date has been set for sanders to die by lethal injection. He and prosecutors now face automatic appeals of his sentence.
