At this point, it might only be newsworthy when Richard Hatch isn't in prison, but as it happens, the Survivor and Celebrity Apprentice alum has finally begun serving his nine-month prison sentence in Brooklyn.
Hatch turned himself in to authorities back in March on his ever-persistent federal tax-evasion charges, and while he has remained in federal custody since then, he was only recently placed in a facility—namely, the Metropolitan Detention Center in New York, which houses approximately 1,000 male and female inmates.
The 50-year-old Hatch can at least console himself with knowing that he's in
good famous company: Al Sharpton had a stint in the facility, as did Peter and John Gotti.
As for Hatch, or inmate No. 05559-070, his projected date of release from the facility is Dec. 12 of this year. Now if only he could stay out, that would be a real Christmas miracle.
