Arias, found guilty by a jury of the first degree murder of her ex-boyfriend in 2008, is housed in the Perryville Prison, where she was punished for a disciplinary violation less than a year into her life sentence without the possibility of parole, losing contact visits for at least 180 days.

The convicted killer is in the Maximum Level 5 of Custody, the Public Information Officer of the Department of Corrections told, a position she will remain in for at least two years. According to the PIO, Inmate #281129 may be moved to Level 4 after a few years, and then could be moved to a Level 3. But because she is serving a life sentence, she is unable to obtain anything lower than a Level 3, or Medium Level of Custody.
