Convicted Degenerate Phone Prankster, 20, Arrives At The Big House In Texas

After a brief stay in a county jail, convicted felon James Tyler Markle arrived last week at Texas’s notorious Huntsville prison to begin serving time for a telephone prank.

The freshly shorn Markle, 20, is being held at Huntsville’s Holliday Unit, an intake facility where state inmates are assessed by corrections officials. Markle, seen in the new mug shot at right, could spend up to two years at Holliday before being transferred to his unit of assignment, according to a Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman.

A blubbering Markle--who used the online handle “Prankster” when tormenting victims on the phone--was sentenced in late-November to five years in jail for criminal mischief in connection with a hoax call he placed to a McDonald’s restaurant. Markle was once a leading figure with Pranknet, the notorious confederation of online vandals.

While Markle’s projected release date is in March 2013, he could be paroled as early as this June from Huntsville, Texas’s oldest prison and home to the state’s death chamber.

He deserves some kind of punishment -- maybe community service. He does not deserve to be beaten, held against his will, anally raped by other men, in a Texas jail. C'mon people, learn some balance and perspective.
"Hello Warden, I'm calling from the CDC. We have an anthrax outbreak at your unit in Huntsville. I need you to stuff some towels into inmate Markle's mouth to keep him from breathing in the noxious contaminant and hit him with the firehoses. Full power. Did you do that? Good, but we're still showing a problem. Try dousing him with gasoline and setting him ablaze. The fire should render the agent harmless."
Phat phelonious phone phreak...
this fat doughboy deserves everything he gets-angry at the world for not getting laid will get him laid plenty in jail. watch how 'funny' he will be wimpering on the cell floor when he gets turned out by the prison wolf.

Cant see if he's got any teeth, but something tells me his mouth aint gonna be talking so legibly in a few months. Squeal like ah pig, come on, yessir!
