Phil Spector Moved to Corcoran State Prison
The Associated Press' Linda Deutsch reports this afternoon that music producer legend and
convicted murderer Phil Spector has been assigned to California's largest lockup, the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison, in Corcoran. Spector, 69, was transferred Monday to Corcoran, which is located off Highway 99, roughly half way between Bakersfield and Fresno. This week is the first he'll spend of his 18-years-to-life sentence for killing sometime actress Lana Clarkson in the early morning hours of February 3, 2003.

Deutsch received the news by phone from Spector's young wife, Rachelle, who complained to the veteran trial reporter that, while being evaluated at North Kern State Prison, Spector "was forced to sleep naked on the floor for two nights and to eat out of a bowl with his hands 'like a dog.'"
A prison official denied to Deutsch any knowledge of Spector being mistreated. Spector has his own cell in a "sensitive-needs facility" that typically houses criminals in need of protection from other inmates.
