The Federal Bureau of Prisons announced today that Martha Stewart would begin serving her prison sentence at the Alderson Federal prison camp in Alderson, WV (Martha Stewart Assigned to Prison in West Virginia).
One of the reasons given for the assignment was the need for extra hands to work in the local coal mine. “We thought Martha had had enough of doilies and cake decoration and might like a change of scenery for this next act in her life,” said a prison official. “Our mines are pretty grim looking and we thought she might also help us spruce them up a bit so our prison campers don’t get too depressed working down there. All in all, we’re really looking forward to Martha’s coming. She should make things fun around here.”
