    There were no special treats to mark Pearlman's birthday, said Robert D. Camacho, director of the Guam Department of Corrections. And there were no requests from anyone wishing to visit Pearlman, he said. "We do nothing for birthdays. We try not to do those types of things," Camacho said. Regardless of a prisoner's fame, "we try not to offer special privileges. That can cause problems with the rest of the detainees." Pearlman, who left Orlando in January as more than a dozen lawsuits began stacking up against him in state and federal court, was arrested last week in Indonesia. He is being housed in a fairly new facility on the U.S. territory of Guam. The island, smaller in size than Seminole County, has about 175,000 residents, or less than half of Seminole's population. The Micronesian island is about three-quarters of the way from Hawaii to the Philippines, at 13 degrees north, about the same latitude as the Caribbean island of Barbados. According to the CIA, the military installation on the island is one of the most strategically important U.S. bases in the Pacific. Pearlman's jail is in Hagatna, the island's capital city. The facility is in two areas, one housing federal detainees and prisoners, the other holding people charged with local crimes. The federal side has room for 100 and is nearly full, as it usually is, Camacho said. Still, Pearlman has a two-bunk cell to himself. Camacho took issue with Pearlman's claim, made before U.S. District Chief Judge Frances M. Tydingco-Gatewood, that the cell was so poor it was causing and aggravating health problems. Camacho said the facility, which is less than 10 years old, has been inspected numerous times. "It's a clean facility," he said. The accommodations hardly compare to what Pearlman once had in Orlando at his sprawling mansion on the shore of Lake Butler, near Windermere. The house -- five bedrooms, a guest house, an office complex, 111/2 bathrooms and an eight-car garage -- is on the market for $8.5 million, down from $12.5 million. The home is listed with Stirling Sotheby's. At the Guam federal jail, prisoners are given blue T-shirt uniforms. Meals are subcontracted and vary, but a typical entree might be chicken and rice, with vegetables and fruit, Camacho said. Pearlman's cell has its own toilet. A community shower is down the hall. Pearlman told jail authorities that he would not accept telephone interviews from news media. Scott Powers can be reached at spowers@orlandosentinel.com or 407-420-5441. Sara K.
