In Prison, Hevesi Scolded For Channel Surfing — Loudly

Former Comptroller Alan Hevesi apparently liked to flip around the dial during his 19-month prison term—- and pump up the volume.

[1]So much so that he was written up for misbehavior on Aug. 9 for arguing with a prison guard after he was told to turn down the TV and stop changing the channels.

“Upon completing my security rounds, I was approached by inmate Hevesi, A., who raised his voice in a loud manner, stating to me, ‘He can change the channels and the TV was not loud.’ I gave the inmate a direct order to lower his voice and that he is to leave the TV alone,” the report reads.

Hevesi apparently had an history of defiant television viewing.

“Inmate Hevesi has been warned numerous times about changing the TV channels and turning up the TV volume without permission from the officers,” the report concludes.

The state said it was the only misbehavior report Hevesi received since he went into prison in April 2011.

Hevesi will soon be able to channel surf as much as he wants and listen to it at any decibel level. He’s to be released on parole by Dec. 19.

And he’s continue to get his taxpayer-funded pension: $105,000 a year.
