- Shepherd was ‘moved’ to HMP Frankland Category A Prison, County Durham
- Inmates there include Soham murderer Ian Huntley and serial killer Levi Bellfield
- In 2018, Shepherd was convicted of the manslaughter of 24-year-old Charlotte Brown; she died after her boat capsized on the Thames on a date

Speedboat killer Jack Shepherd has reportedly been moved to a Category A prison where he will serve the rest of his sentence alongside Sarah Everard’s murderous ex-police officer Wayne Couzens and other notorious inmates.
Shepherd, 33, is now being held at HMP Frankland, according to the Mirror.
Other prisoners at the jail in County Durham include Soham murderer Ian Huntley and serial killer Levi Bellfield.
“He spends his days writing to friends and family and getting along with the other inmates. Jail was a humiliating experience for him,” a source said.
Shepherd was sentenced to six years in prison after being found guilty of grossly negligent manslaughter following the death of Charlotte Brown when her speedboat capsized during a champagne date on the Thames in 2015 .

Charlotte Brown, 24, was killed after Shepherd’s boat capsized on the River Thames near Wandsworth Bridge in 2015
Ms Brown, from Clacton, Essex, was on her first date with Shepherd after meeting on the OkCupid dating site.
In July 2020, Shepherd had 78 days less than his 10-year prison sentence due to the time he served while awaiting extradition after fleeing the UK to Georgia.
Three appeals judges have said Shepherd’s 78 days in custody pending extradition in Georgia should count toward the prison sentence he is serving.
Shepherd’s trial in July 2018 learned how he bought the 1980s boat on Gumtree and tried to impress other women with it.
But his first date with Mrs Brown ended in tragedy when the 14ft Fletcher Arrowflyte GTO, which was riddled with flaws, hit a log and capsized, throwing them into the river near Wandsworth Bridge.
He later sparked outrage by appealing the conviction while on the run in Georgia – and he received funding to do so.
