Dale Preston, an inmate at the Maine State Prison in Thomaston, is currently serving 20 days in solitary for allegedly making a false statement to independent gubernatorial candidate Angus King about the cause of death of fellow inmate Gary Penney, who died on August 30, 1988. Preston said that a former prison guard told him that Penney was murdered by guards, prompting Warden Martin A. Magnusson to sentence Preston to the solitary confinement and to issue a statement concerning the actual cause of Penney's death. The final medical examiner's report on Penney concluded that the cause of death was undetermined, despite officials claims that Penney committed suicide. Details.
