Sir Allen Stanford Beaten To Point Of Losing Feeling On Right Side Of Face For A Second Time

Last May, accused Ponzi schemer Allen Stanford’s lawyers asked that their clients be let out of prison for two reasons. 1) Keeping him there ahead of his trial, scheduled to start in January 2011, was unconstitutional and 2) he was getting this shit beat out of him, including one incident in which he was “so savagely beaten that he lost all feeling in the right side of his face and lost near-field vision in his right eye. The court decided not to let him out and he has again been roughed up a bit.

‘I was on the telephone and some of the other people in the cell didn’t like it,’ Stanford told a friend who visited him, according to the Sunday Times. ‘They said something to me and then two of them jumped me and kept punching me and kicking me in the head. I lost consciousness, but at one time I came round and grabbed one of them by the leg. That just set them off a again’.

The guards burst into the cell and shackled Stanford before taking him to a hospital where he underwent an operation while still chained up. Stanford suffered fractures to his eye socket, cheek bones and severe bruising to his body. He has lost all feeling in the right side of his face. No one has been punished for the attack and he spent three weeks in solitary confinement. before being moved to another prison.

The assault happened in October last year in a cell holding 14 other men. It was designed to hold eight inmates and at the time had no electricity, air conditioning and was in virtual darkness. The friend claimed the inmates were ‘on edge’ with each other because of the cramped conditions.

    Nobody deserves this even if they sucked out your retirement. This is the U.S. and should be a civilized nation even in prison. Those conditions reminds me of a fucking prison in Beijing.

    If, as a 25 year old you were given the choice of living like a king for 35 years, then going to jail and getting the shit kicked out of you every now and then, what would you choose? He and Madoff are getting off easy, no matter how many ass whippings they take.

  13. Rho2Gamma says:

    If he was on the phone during this, there is guaranteed to be a recording of the attack. Possible guesses of the transcript?

    Stanford: Yeah, so move my money from Argentina to Columbia..hold on a sec.
    Prisoner: Hey holmes, I gots to call my lady essay.
    Stanford: Hold the fuck on a minute. I am making a deal larger than your family that I hired to do my yard work.
    Stamford: [cries for help and loud pounding noises]

    Ass whooping maybe, but what about ass poundings?

  21. Guest says:

    this is a little ridiculous. yes he’s the scum of the earth, but that’s a pretty severe beating. whatever happened to prison rape? that’s something he deserves, stuff like this only gets him sympathy.

    That beating looks worse than it really is. It’s a high probability that he is on blood thinners for his heart, causing more bleeding and bruising than normal due to a failure to clot properly.

    Meh. If drugs were legal there’d by about 70% fewer inmates and plenty of phone time for everybody. I bet Stanford is one of those “tough on crime” assholes.

  34. trojan says:

    ok you would honestly say physical assault with a deadly weapon is a lesser crime than grand, grand larceny?
    is that you lizzie grubman?

    Would those be the Latino relatives of those he scammed in the Caribbean and Venezuela? Now there’s an occupational hazard he didn’t think of at the time…

    This guy aint no Madoff – – – you don’t see Madoff getting his ass kicked in jail.

    Had the vox populi turned on Wall St a little bit more and this could have been anyone of you assholes who were pushing mortgage deals through in 06. Half of you on here probably worked at Bear and that whole thing WAS a ponzi scheme.

    Not saying this guy isn’t a scumbag, but no one who’s innocent and can’t defend themselves deserves to sit in county and take a beating like that. And yea, you MMA dorks on an adrenaline trip stand a chance against a half dozen dudes with Amor De Rey tats across the stomach.

    You left out the moral dilemma off ruining the lives of hundreds perhaps thousands of people as a result of your choice to live like a king. Perhaps that is part of the problem

    yeah dipshit, if your carelessness was to blame for the accident– reckless endangerment and hit & run (in CO, 1-3 years) are felonies. there’s physical pain and financial hardship.
    if you had a spine you’d realize how much it truly sucks to break it.

    You better hope that the tax auditor don’t come a knockin’, and if he do, that he don’t find anything. ‘Cause this is America, where committing a crime and serving time is not reserved for the strong-armed stuff, but for whoever don’t please the authorities.

    This con artist deserves every licking! Nobody forced him to make the decision to rip-off his clients and now the prick will go to jail and have a playmate named bubba! It is a good lesson for anyone who wants to rape their clients. They all get it at the end.

  58. Guest says:

    It’s almost as though a systematic starving of the governments, state and local, of America has some kind of consequences for people unfortunate enough to need basic services, such as the protection of prison guards or adequately-sized prisons. Fortunately this injustice is limited to that situation, as far as I can tell.

  59. Folly says:

    Always remember, you ARE innocent until PROVEN guilty. You never know in this country when you or a loved one may need this to hang on to. Innocent people DO get accused of crime. You would want to know that while you are waiting for the wheels of justice to give you your day in court, and that your must be in jail for the meantime, that you a physically safe and treated with respect.

  60. Covey01 says:

    True.

  61. Rho2Gamma says:

    I am under the assumption that he was acting like a big swinging dick in the jail and crossed someone the wrong way. It is his fault for not knowing his place in the slammer. Don’t matter how many jets you owned, once those bars close, you cower and cover your anus.

  62. Rho2Gamma says:

    If you think this is the worst thing that happens in jail (even while awaiting trial), you need to watch the series “OZ”.
