Legendary producer and convicted murderer Phil Spector may be taking the Martha Stewart approach to jail-time. At least, in a way. Spector, age 69, has just begun to serve his 19 years to life sentence and, according to the Associated Press, he'd like to serve it with certain luxuries: specifically, the ability to listen to music, check email and watch his favorite shows.
Spector is being held in a single cell in a "sensitive-needs facility" area of his new home, the State Prison at Corcoran, Calif. As a medium-security inmate at California's largest prison, he is allowed to ask for certain creature comforts and, at the top of his list, are an iPod, a television and a computer. Prison officials have indicated that those wishes will likely be granted.
Editor Rozek’s Notes: That’s really nice of them. Come to think of it…if he has an ipod, a computer and a television, then he will officially have my life! Wait a minute…does he have to pay a mortgage…and for other people’s health insurance too? No?...oh…wait, who’s the criminal? I’m so confused!
