Sir Allen Stanford moved to another prison after a brawl

The renegade financier Sir Allen Stanford, awaiting trial in Texas on $7bn (£4.4bn) fraud charges, is being moved to a different jail by US authorities after he suffered two black eyes, a broken nose and concussion in a fracas with a fellow inmate. Stanford, who bankrolled Twenty20 cricket tournaments, had complained repeatedly about conditions at the Joe Corley Detention Centre, a private facility in the town of Conroe where he shared a cell with ten others. After representations by lawyers, a judge ordered authorities to move him to a federal detention centre in central Houston, saying this will make it easier for the former billionaire to meet with counsel in preparation for his trial Stanford's lawyer, Kent Schaffer, said the only way to communicate with Stanford had been to hold up documents to a window and shout through two-inch thick glass. Schaffer gave few details of the fight in which Stanford was injured, other than to say: "The reality is violence happens in any jail."
