Scott Doll being held at prison in Dutchess County
Scott F. Doll, 48, convicted by a jury of his peers of murdering his friend, 66-year-old Joseph Benaquist, has been transferred to the maximum security prison in Fishkill, Dutchess County.
The Downstate Correctional Facility, 320 miles from Corfu, is a transfer facility. Doll will likely be held there for a few weeks before being transferred to the prison where he will likely serve out his 15-years-to-life term.
Doll arrived at Downstate on July 7.
Officials told me after Doll's conviction that he would be sent to a prison a good distance from Attica and Wende, two facilities Doll worked at during his nearly 25-year career in corrections.
Prison officials would not want Doll mingling with either former co-workers or the men he guarded, so they would want to get him out of Western New York.
Doll's Department Identification Number is 10B1993.
He is eligible for parole April 17, 2024.
Doll is scheduled to appear in Batavia City Court again on July 27 for a hearing related to a charge of promoting prison contraband. His attorney says he plans to challenge the charge.
