Allen Stanford, aka Mini Madoff, is in jail awaiting charges for a ponzi scheme he cooked up that netted him over 7 billion dollars. While locked up, he got his butt whooped up pretty bad.

The Texas financier R. Allen Stanford, awaiting trial on charges that he led a $7 billion investor fraud, was granted a transfer Monday from a private Texas jail to a federal one closer to his lawyers in downtown Houston.

Mr. Stanford, who is being detained without bail, is recovering from injuries suffered in a fight with another inmate on Thursday. He suffered a concussion, two black eyes and a broken nose, according to his lawyer, Kent Schaffer.

Federal District Judge David Hittner signed an order transferring Mr. Stanford to the federal jail in Houston without mentioning the fight. The altercation occurred at the Joe Corley detention center in Conroe, north of Houston, where Mr. Stanford, 59, has been held since he was indicted in June on charges of bilking investors through a scheme involving Antiguan bank certificates.

That’s what his tail gets.
