Richard Hatch sent to federal prison, will appear nude in an independent film

Richard Hatch was sent to a federal prison in Oklahoma over the weekend after spending time since his conviction at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility. He’s serving four years in prison after his conviction on tax evasion and other charges.

His lawyer “it was unclear whether Hatch will serve out his sentence at the Oklahoma prison,” and said Richard wants to be in a Florida or Rhode Island prison, according to the Providence Journal.

Michael Minns told the paper, “We have sent several letters trying to get him moved to wherever he was going to get assigned. He should be in a camp. The camps are the most comfortable of the uncomfortable. They are still jails, but they get to see the sky and be outside. It’s bad for Richard, who is an outdoor person.”

He is also still a nudist, apparently. Richard has a full-frontal nude scene in a new independent film, Another Gay Movie, which describes itself as “a raunchy ride on the bumpy road to butt love.” TMZ reports that “[a]t the movie’s LA premiere on Saturday at the Outfest film festival, patrons shrieked and gasped during Hatch’s full-frontal nude scene.”

The film also stars Ant from Last Comic Standing and James Getzlaff from Boy Meets Boy. It opens July 28 in New York, LA, and Philadelphia.
