“It’s not about Spector. It’s about getting services to other inmates,” said California Department of Corrections spokeswoman Terry Thornton.
Spector and other prisoners will be going to Pleasant Valley State Prison in Coalinga, where the other most notorious prisoner is Erik Menendez, convicted with his brother, Lyle, of murdering their millionaire parents in 1993.
Spector, 69, has been at the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison at Corcoran.
Wall of Sound music producer Spector is serving 19 years to life for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson.
