Wes Rosenbalm now in prison

(WJHL) – An update to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website suggests the former chief executive officer of Bristol Virginia Utilities is behind bars.


The agency’s inmate locator reveals a 45-year-old man named Wes Rosenbalm is now in a federal prison in Pine Knot, KY, which is little more than three hours away from Bristol.

According to the government website, Rosenbalm started serving that sentence overnight at McCreary United States Penitentiary, a high security prison, which is also home to a minimum security satellite camp.

A federal judge previously sentenced the former BVU CEO to 33 months behind bars.

Rosenbalm joins more than 1,500 other men who are serving time at the facility. The prison’s most recent handbook, updated in January 2013, reveals inmates are required to wake up daily at 6:00 am and can only have visitors on weekends and holidays.

Rosenbalm previously pleaded guilty to defrauding the IRS and illegally soliciting gifts in connection to the ongoing federal BVU corruption investigation. Neither his attorney’s office nor the Bureau of Prisons could offer additional details at this time.

Former BVU Vice President David Copeland, who also pleaded guilty in connection to the investigation, is at the same prison, according to the Bureau of Prisons’ website.
