Alleged Rhode Island mob associate contests prison segregation

An alleged mob associate arrested last month as part of a probe into the extortion of Providence-area strip clubs wants to be given more privileges in jail.
Raymond "Scarface" Jenkins says in a motion filed Saturday in U.S. District Court in Providence that his placement in segregation at the Donald W. Wyatt Detention Facility is "punitive in nature and for no apparent or justifiable reason."
The 47-year-old Jenkins says he is locked down 24 hours daily, must shower in chains, has no recreation time and has limited visits and phone calls.
Jenkins is accused of threatening an unidentified person with violence to get $25,000 to pay off a debt. He pleaded not guilty to extortion and extortion conspiracy.
Wyatt Warden Brian Murphy declined comment.
