"Joey The Clown" Lombardo Claims "Elder Abuse" In NC Prison

Via CBS Chicago

Wisecracking Chicago Outfit killer Joseph “Joey the Clown” Lombardo claims he is being subjected to “elder abuse” as a result of being placed in solitary confinement last year in a NorthJoeyTheClownLombardo Carolina federal prison.  Lombardo, 84, was sentenced to life in prison for murder and racketeering in 2009. He has since been confined to a wheelchair and has been a “model prisoner,” according to court papers filed in Chicago by his attorneys.  Nevertheless, in April of last year, the attorney general placed Lombardo under “special administrative measures” that restrict his access to mail, telephone and visitors, citing “Lombardo’s proclivity for violence.”

Lombardo’s petition claimed that no specific action on his part was given to justify the measures.
