BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Lawyers for a former lobbyist convicted for his role in Alabama’s gambling corruption case say he’s been attacked while serving his sentence behind bars.

Attorneys for former Country Crossing casino lobbyist Jarrod Massey filed court documents requesting to see their client. WBRC-TV reports that the lawyers don’t know his medical condition.

The Dothan Eagle reports that Massey was attacked at the Maxwell Federal Prison Camp in Montgomery and has been moved to another facility

His lawyers say in court papers that they’ve attempted to contact the Bureau of Prisons to assess their client’s medical condition, but those efforts have been unsuccessful.

Massey is serving a sentence of five years and five months in prison after a massive investigation into public corruption associated with gambling in Alabama.
