By CBS 8 News

Lawyers for a former lobbyist who pleaded guilty in Alabama's gambling corruption case say he was attacked at a federal prison in Montgomery and moved to a different prison.

 

Attorneys for former Country Crossing casino lobbyist Jarrod Massey filed court documents requesting to see their client and check on his wellbeing. The date of the attack and Massey's condition are not disclosed in court records.

 

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons reports Massey was moved from the federal prison in Montgomery to the one in Talladega.

 

Massey is serving a sentence of five years and five months after admitting he offered millions in bribes to legislators to support pro-gambling legislation.

 

Massey entered the Montgomery prison Aug. 27 to begin his sentence.
