Why "Mon père est dans le prison." incorrect?
This question relates to:French lesson "En vs dans with locations (prepositions)"

The correct expression is "mon père est en prison" because it means 'incarcerated' which is a general statement as explained in the lesson above.
Note the absence of the article (by the way prison is feminine so it would have been la prison).
