5-star prison accommodation: Lifestyles of the rich and incarcerated

Stevie Stotes

Self-appointed games show host Stevie Stotes terrorised neighbours in a 5 year-long campaign

With the country battling high unemployment and a weakened economy, a Channel 4 Dispatches program will reveal how many of the worst offenders in the British prison system are enjoying the kind of lifestyles normally associated with footballers and reality TV stars.

Take for instance 17 year-old Stevie Stotes. He waged a 5 year-long campaign of terror against neighbours, sealing them in their cars and subjecting them to humiliating games and forfeits, like “rising waters”, “downhill slalom” and the ominously titled “ants”.

And yet at an additional £6,000/year to the tax payer, his personal masseuse and satellite TV might seem more like rewards than punishments.

luxury prison

Tracey George's room looks more like a luxury hotel suite than a maximum security cell in Shipfield's woman's prison

Babysitter Tracey George, 24, routinely stitched fur and feathers to unruly children in her care before selling them to exotic animal collectors on the Egyptian black-market.

How then do we explain to mothers why George has a personal trainer and her own floatation tank while staying at her Majesty’s pleasure, while their children are most likely stuck in cages, thousands of miles away, providing entertainment for wealthy tourists?

Investigators found a dearth of lucid answers. David Geoffs, governor at South Keynes – a maximum security prison which houses a spa, race track and routinely provides Craftmatic beds – claims the problem stems from admin errors, when luxury items are accidentally ordered while trying to purchase expensive rehabilitative treatments.

Others remain unconvinced.

The Dispatches program airs on Channel 4 in spring.
