Prison Hasn’t Been Kind to Tim Donaghy

Yet another reminder that the hole is not a place you want to find yourself in: “Tim Donaghy, the former NBA referee convicted of gambling on professional basketball games — including ones in which he officiated — will complete his prison sentence at a Tampa halfway house, according to a prisoners’ advocacy group. He will be released from prison on June 17. Donaghy’s release date is in question because he was attacked by another inmate last year, according to a news release by P. Zaranek Prison Consultants. The inmate, who claimed ties to the New York mob, beat Donaghy with a heavy object, the release states.”
