Allen Stanford Shackled Before Taken To Hospital After Being Beaten Up By Fellow Inmates

November 8, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): Allen Stanford had to face the humiliation of having his hands and feet shackled as he was taken to the hospital following grievous injuries caused by his fellow inmates in jail. The 60 year old cricket tycoon had been in the midst of many a controversy before he had been accused of masterminding a fraud that amounts to a whopping $7 billion. He is awaiting trial currently.

His condition certainly seemed pitiful with his neck being kept in a brace and eyes almost closed shut. His head was bandaged completely too.

He had once been hailed as the savior of cricket in England but that certainly did not seem to impress his jail inmates at the Conroe private prison located near Houston, Texas. The Sunday Times reports his conversation with a friend. He said that he had been on the telephone which his cell mates, apparently, resented. He recollects that they had said something which Stanford did not catch after which they simply jumped on him pounding and beating him about his head and face.

He said that he had lost his consciousness midway and managed to grab the feet of one of his attackers when he regained it. This act set them off again and he was beaten black and blue. The prison guards entered his cell and carried him off to the hospital for treatment. He was, however, shackled before he was taken out of the cell. The doctors proceeded to conduct a surgery on him but he remained chained all throughout.

His condition continues to be serious with the right side of his face turning completely numb. He spent almost three weeks by himself in solitary confinement before being moved to another prison.
