Scott Peterson Is Reportedly Trading Sex for Protection Behind Bars

Being famous and in prison is not a good combination. Being infamous and widely despised and in prison is usually worse.

Scott Peterson is about as infamous and widely despised as it gets, and his fellow inmates at San Quentin prison know that.

A new report alleges Peterson is so desperate to avoid the wrath of other prisoners that he is trading sexual favors for protection.

Raynard Cummings is a convicted cop killer and an armed robber.

He has been in prison since 1983 for the shooting of LAPD Officer Paul Verna.

In a lengthy letter published by RadarOnline, Cummings reveals that Scott Peterson is trading sexual favors for protection from a group of strong, burly inmates — including Cummings.

RadarOnline shares that Cummings is 61 years old, 6-foot-6, and 250 pounds.

It sounds like Cummings able to offer a great deal of protection from the regular beatings that Peterson would otherwise experience in general population.

Cummings has a nickname for Peterson — his “snowbunny.” Outside of prison, that nickname has some very different meanings. Behind bars, well …

Cummings and his group within San Quentin are apparently known as the Tribe.

In addition to sexual favors, Peterson apparently performs unenviable chores — like washing the Tribe’s underwear — and also gives them backrubs with massage oil int he showers.

Though Cummings cannot imagine why Peterson actually requested to be moved out of protective custody and placed in the general population, he writes that he enjoys reaping the benefits.

“Taking SP [Scott Peterson] in was and is one of the sweetest move[s] I’ve ever made in 37 years of death row imprisonment,” Cummings writes.

“For whatever reasons,” Cummings writes. “SP wanted to hang out with the baddest of the blackness…This is the circle in which SP chose to walk into in the middle — and then to stay in the middle of — learning the program.”

“I call him my Death Row sissy,” Cummings explains. “Because he’ll do just about anything to save his worthless neck.”

Wow.

Cummings elaborates, saying: “He knows he’s one of the most hated men in here and could be killed at any moment.”

Cummings even included some more salacious details about his interactions with Peterson in the showers, writing: “The shower felt silky-smooth and SP to me is one handsome white boy.”

The world knows the grisly details of Laci Peterson’s murder. So many people wasted countless hours searching for Laci when, the court concluded, her husband knew the whole time where she was — because he had been the one to murder her.

Scott Peterson has been on death row for many years, now.

He has made numerous attempts to appeal his conviction, but to no avail.

It is difficult to imagine why someone like Peterson would want to enter the general population — unless, of course, he simply had a death wish, and changed his mind afterwards.

What Cummings describes should probably not be confused with prison rape, another serious issue. This sounds like Peterson has effectively hired these men to protect him from other men.

But it’s still not a good situation.

Some might view Cummings’ letter as some form of justice.

Others believe that every day on which Peterson draws breath is an injustice, and that we — all of us who are good people — will live in a better world the day that he finally dies.

Whether or not you believe the word of a death row inmate who was convicted of murdering a police officer during a routine traffic stop, the letter is an indictment of the prison system.

Even if you believe that Peterson deserves his current fate as described by Cummings, we all know that there are innocent people behind bars who become victims of violence.

We should have prisons designed in such a way that inmates, guilty or innocent, are not at the mercy of strong, vicious criminals who have nothing to lose.

That said … it is difficult if not impossible to feel sorry for Scott Peterson.

Jinger Duggar Shares New Baby Pic, Inspiration Behind Daughter’s Name

Jinger Duggar and Jeremy Vuolo are brand new parents.

Just a week ago, the Counting On star welcomed her very first child into the world, a daughter named Felicity.

In the days since, Vuolo has made one thing very clear…

… having a small baby at home is tiring!

The new father shared a couple memes on Monday that joked (but not really) about how coffee is now his best friend and how he’ll never see sleep ever again.

Those made us laugh, but not Jinger is here to make us squeal in delight,

First, the reality star shared a fresh photo of her child, which we’ve gone ahead and also shared ourself above. She’s so very precious!

Second, she opened up at length to Us Weekly about various aspects of (very early) motherhood.

Before we get to that, however, a few relevant facts:

– Jinger and Jeremy got married in 2016.

– At 4:37 a.m. on July 19, the couple became parents to Felicity Nicole Vuolo.

– She was born in San Antonio, Texas.

– She weighed 8 lbs, 3 ounces at the time and measured 19.5 inches in length.

What have these first few days been like as a mother?

“It’s been so incredible,” Jinger explains to Us Weekly. “We can’t stop staring at her adorable little face!”

Sister Jessa Seewald and mother Michelle Duggar are currently in Texas to lend a hand to the parents, something for whih Jinger is grateful.

“I have been so thankful to have so much great help around me, giving me time to rest and recover,” she says.

And what about that baby name? 

Was Felicity named after the former Keri Russell drama on The WB?

No.

It “just felt right,” Jinger says, adding that she and Jeremy “loved the name Felicity from the moment we thought of it several months ago.

“The name itself means intense happiness or supreme joy. It was also the name of a young Christian girl long ago who valiantly stood strong for her faith.”

Wow, who knew?!?

We love it.

Jinger also thinks that her child resembles her husband and has confirmed that the little girl’s nursey has a southwest theme.

Said Jeremy upon meeting Felicity last week:

“Both mom and baby are healthy, doing great, and resting well. We are very thankful for her safe arrival and look forward to life as parents!”

And, in this case, “God is gracious to entrust us with such a wonderful gift,” gushes Jinger.
