Lerach: Club Fed is too tough for me. Court: too bad



Many newspapers (here's a sample) report that William Lerach (see the summary of Wally's superb Conde Nast posting on this fiend below), now serving a two-year prison term for conspiracy in the federal minimum security prison at Lompoc, California, has asked to be moved to a residential alcohol abuse treatment program. The court has refused Lerach's request -- he'll just have to tough it out at Club Fed. Funny how Lerach wasn't as far as we know receiving treatment for alcohol dependency before he was convicted.
