Allen Stanford Back in Jail after Banged Up From brawl
Alleged mastermind of a $7 billion fraud, Allen Stanford, is back in his jail cell after suffering a mild concussion, broken nose and two black eyes in a prison brawl last week.
Stanford, 59, was injured in a fight on Thursday with a fellow inmate at the Joe Corley Detention Facility in Conroe, Texas, and was hospitalized over the weekend
Kent Schaffer, Stanford's court-appointed attorney, had said "I don't have any reason to believe that he was targeted in some way because of who he is."
Stanford has called conditions in the prison "intolerable" and has requested a transfer out of the facility, 40 miles north of Houston, where he has been held since his arrest in June
Stanford faces life in prison if convicted of all 21 criminal charges against him, but he still denies allegations.
