The UK Sunday Express posted an article yesterday claiming Phil Spector had an iPod and a laptop computer while incarcerated and was leaving comments on a "Twitter" account.
At 12:30 pm today, I spoke to the Watch Commander at the Twin Towers facility and asked him to verify the claim that Spector had an iPod and computer in his possession. His response was, "Absolutely not."
While the Twitter comments "may be" statements Phil Spector has shared with someone who has visited him or spoke to him on the phone at the jail, they are not being posted by him directly.
It's my understanding that Spector will be transferred into State custody at the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation within the next two weeks.
Clarkson vs. Spector, Civil Case
On May 26th, the court granted a motion by Donna Clarkson's civil attorneys, John Taylor and Rod Lindblom to conduct a financial discovery of Spector's assets. The same day, a motion to stay the civil case was denied. I hope to have copies of those motions up later on the blog. It is my understanding that Doron Weinberg has filed a memorandum that Spector will plead the 5th in the civil matter pending an appeal in his criminal case.
