The government filed a sentencing memoranda on Thursday that claims Conrad Black, while tutoring at Coleman FCI prison, did not go above and beyond what was expected. In fact, according to Carrie DeLaGarza, an education specialist, he was often late and sat outside the class reading or writing. He also elected to take a piano class which caused him to miss parts of the GED class. Based on DeLaGarza's interactions, Black "projected the attitude that he was better than others in the class, both faculty and students.
A unit manager at Coleman FCI by the name of Tammy Padgett states that she observed that Black "gathered a following of inmates who performed services for him, acting like servants. These inmates cooked for Black, cleaned for him, mopped his floor, ironed his clothes, and similar tasks. This is not at all frequent at Coleman."
In addition, a Ms. Carbone, Black's assigned case manager reported that she met with Black in 2010, the day before he was to released on bond. Black told Carbone words to the effect of, "I believe I should be addressed as Lord Black from this point forward." Ms. Carbone informed Black that she would address him as she addressed other inmates.
