Texas financier R. Allen Stanford, who faces federal criminal charges related to an alleged conspiracy to defraud investors, was in a jail fight Thursday that left him with two black eyes and a broken nose, his attorney told The Associated Press. The day after the fight, a federal judge ordered that Stanford be transferred from his current detention in Conroe, Texas, to a Houston facility no later than this Thursday, to allow him to "prepare his defense." Stanford had requested the move in a Sept. 21 court filing.
