Richard J Donovan Correctional Facility
The Richard J Donovan Correctional Facility is a state prison located at the Otay Mesa Law Enforcement Complex. It is the only state prison in San Diego County, and holds numerous violent offenders. The prison is a perpetual victim of overcrowding, operating at 217% capacity for the past five years.
It is a medium/maximum security prison, holding prisoners of both security levels, but it is unequipped to handle ‘special case’ prisoners (typically those who have skills that make normal incarceration difficult) or superhuman offenders, who are kept at The George F Bailey Detention Facility and Blanch Correctional respectively.
Donovan notably holds Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris, AKA The Toolbox Killers, as well as Sirhan Sirhan, the man who assassinated Robert F Kennedy in 1968. Sirhan and Norris are both serving life sentences with the possibility of parole, while Biottaker is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole.
