Martha Stewart tells website visitors she's getting used to prison life

[JURIST] Lifestyle merchandise mogul Martha Stewart says she is adjusting to life at Alderson Federal Prison Camp in an open letter to supporters released on her website Friday. Stewart, convicted last March for lying to investigators about a suspicious stock trade, said that the minimum security prison camp for women "is like an old fashioned college campus-- without the freedom, of course." She also indicated that "I'll be making postings now and then" to the website. AP has more. Further coverage of the Martha Stewart case is available on JURIST's Paper Chase here.
