Years After Trial, Reiser Talks Life In Prison

Filed under

Mule Creek State Prison has a sensitive needs facility housing some of the state's most notorious inmates, and those who other inmates might want to harm.

On a hot summer day, dozens of men were outside in the yard. But KTVU reporter Amber Lee found Hans Reiser inside.

The 46-year-old convicted killer came out of his cell wearing a straw hat. He looks much different than he did two years ago when Amber Lee spoke with him at Santa Rita Jail in Dublin shortly after he was convicted of first degree murder for killing his estranged wife Nina.

When asked if he's having any trouble with the other inmates, Reiser says, "Well, doesn't every inmate have trouble with other inmates?"

Prison officials told us he receives no special treatment. Amber Lee spoke with an inmate housed in the same building as Reiser. Inmate Ron Fritchey says Reiser "stays to himself . doesn't really socialize with anybody just a real loner type guy."
When Reiser made a deal with the prosecution to reveal where he buried Nina's body, he waived the right to appeal. Still he spends much of his days in prison here handwriting legal files such as this one in hopes of getting a new trial.

"What I'm most sorry about is that I had anything to do with that lawyer," says Reiser.
