Charles Bronson Could Face Another Trial And Spend Longer In Prison
| Last updated
One of Britain's most infamous prisoners Charles Bronson has had people campaigning for his freedom for some time now, arguing that he is a changed man.
However, the violent criminal - now known as Charles Salvador - has admitted that he may have to wait a while longer after finding himself 'in a spot of trouble again', the Daily Star has reported.
In a letter sent to his friend Richy Horsely, the 65-year-old is said to have outlined the real reason that he was moved from HMP Wakefield to HMP Frankland at the start of the year.
Bronson's new nick is also the current home to Soham murderer Ian Huntley, Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe and Lee Rigby killer Michael Adebolajo.
According to Horsely, the letter written by Bronson reads: "Unfortunately I'm in a spot of trouble again. Looks like another trial - no bleeding end to it, but it is what it is."
Bronson is alleged to have punched and made death threats to a prison guard in a spat about Bronson's wedding to ex-Coronation Street actress Paula Williamson last November.
Bronson, apparently angry at not having been allowed to attend his own wedding reception last year, reportedly lunged at a deputy governor and punched him in the incident on 25 January. He was then restrained by guards.
A spokesperson for the Prison Service has confirmed that an incident occurred at HMP Wakefield.
"There is a police investigation ongoing, so it would be inappropriate to comment further," the spokesperson said.
WATCH CHARLES BRONSON'S WIFE DISCUSS THEIR MARRIAGE:
Bronson and Williamson married in a secret ceremony at HMP Wakefield last year after getting engaged in February 2017. Williamson has previously said on the record that she would like to start a family with Bronson in the future.
Bronson is currently appealing his life sentence after passing a string of violence reduction courses in prison. He publicly renounced violence in 2007 and has since concentrated on his career as an artist.
The former bareknuckle boxer was given life in 1999 after taking a prison art teacher hostage, having spent over 40 years in prison on/off since first being locked up for armed robbery in 1974.
Just days after his wedding Bronson's application for parole was refused by the prison Parole Board, so he'll have to serve at least another two years.
