Harpham On Jail: "It's Nice To Have A Cell To Yourself"

SPOKANE, Wash. - Confessed backpack bomber Kevin Harpham has been in solitary confinement in the Spokane County Jail for eight months and according to documents that were recently unsealed in this case, he hasn't minded the alone time.

While in jail, where Harpham's served time since his March arrest for placing a bomb along the Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity March in January, he exchanged letters and post cards with a man named Glenn Miller. In one undated letter to Miller, Harpham wrote, "They have been keeping me in the hole here.It's nice to have a cell to yourself but it's highly restrictive. The worst things about jail, or at least this jail is the hard bed, limited clothes, and blankets to keep warm."

According to the same letter, Harpham hoped for better conditions in prison writing that someone once told him "Federal prisons are much better than the state ones, I hope that is accurate. I also hope they are more entertaining than this place."

Also in the letters, Miller asked if Harpham needed any money and was even willing to set up a fund to set help Harpham with his finances. Harpham declined saying that someone had told him it was "Best to take a public defender and not waste personal money on a trial."

Harpham will be sentenced Wednesday in federal court where he faces 27 to 32 years in a federal prison.
