Doctor’s Killer Punished for Intimidating Woman

KSAL StaffJune 5, 2013

The Kansas Department of Corrections says the convicted killer of an abortion provider violated prison rules by trying to intimidate the woman who reopened the doctor’s abortion clinic in Wichita.

DOC spokesman Jeremy Barclay said Wednesday that Scott Roeder will be punished with 45 days in disciplinary segregation with no outside communication. That would be followed by 60 days of loss of privileges and a $20 fine.

The sanctions were imposed after an administrative hearing Tuesday afternoon at the state prison in Lansing, where Roeder is imprisoned.

The 55-year-old abortion opponent is serving a life sentence for gunning down George Tiller in 2009 at a Wichita church.

In a jailhouse call posted on YouTube in April, Roeder said reopening Tiller’s clinic is almost like putting a target on your back.
