Go to Prison in Style

Next time a hot Hollywood starlet does something worthy of time in the pokey (we’re talking to you, Paris, Lindsay, and Nicole!), maybe they should request a transfer to Cleveland County, Oklahoma, where the inmates wear pastel print pants and hot pink tops as their uniform…

Racked recently uncovered this story out of Oklahoma: Prisoners in the town of Norman have had to trade in their standard electric orange jumpsuits for the ones pictured above, which, according to a local newspaper, “make them look more like clowns than criminals.” Officials in the sheriff’s office say the outfits were selected for security reasons–“We want our inmates to be identifiable. If one of them slips over the wall, we want to know about it right away,” Undersheriff Rhett Burnett told The Oklahoman–but an area attorney is saying he thinks they were chosen to embarrass the inmates. “A lot of innocent people get arrested and go through that jail, and everyone is supposed to be presumed innocent until they are found guilty. It’s bad enough to be arrested, but to then be humiliated by having to wear a costume like that is wrong,” Fred Shaeffer said
