Big Brother 9’s Matt McDonald Posts July 13 Blog From Rhode Island Detention Center

Matt McDonald of Big Brother 9 has been moved from county jail to a detention center in Rhode Island. He spent 15 months in the county jail and in is previous blog had said he was eager to be moved to a federal prison.

He was sentenced to three years for distribution of oxycodone, while his fellow Big Brother 9 house guest Adam Jasinski was sentenced to four years for the same offense. Jasinski not only was selling oxycodone, but failed to report his $500,000 winnings to the IRS. Guess he was thinking they wouldn’t notice he had won the money on a show being nationally televised.

McDonald is still following Big Brother and mentions that he hopes to watch the show that night. Big Brother contestants are usually forgotten a year later, but McDonald has attracted a lot of attention four years after leaving the Big Brother house…only in a negative way.

He ends his blog with a quote from mobster Whitey Bulger who had been on the run from the law, for many years before being captured recently:

When I get some more paper I’ll write again…but for now I’ll leave you with a little quote from our “good friend” Whitey Bulger… “It takes a strong person to reach inside himself and say I’m here because of me.”
