Database Indicates Rothstein Is in St. Lucie County Jail
Click here and you can see the results of a Rothstein search on the website, which was created to help crime victims find inmates. Here's what comes on the screen:

ST. LUCIE COUNTY JAIL
An inmate search on the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office website, however, doesn't show Rothstein at that jail.
Why Rothstein, who faces up to 100 years on Ponzi-related federal crimes, would be moved from the Federal Detention Center in Miami to the St. Lucie County Jail is a mystery, but one possibility is that he is there cooperating with state agencies investigating aspects of the case. His attorney, Marc Nurik, told the Sun-Sentinel that he had a medical emergency, and the feds have said rather cryptically only that he's still in custody.
I'm going to update this post later in the morning when some additional reporting can be done.
