Even in Slammer, Pearlman's a Dirty Rat

Jailmates of convicted boy-band con-man Lou Pearlman, be advised: Your conversations may be recorded for snitching purposes.

While waiting to find out his legal fate last year in Orange County, Pearlman listened in on another inmate's chat and put together a dossier that implicated the inmate, Davin Smith, in a cop killing. As the Orlando Sentinel reports, Pearlman took detailed notes and even drew diagrams that could be "useful" in the cops' investigation of Smith. Pearlman's evidence was revealed yesterday in court and the trial begins in November.

Pearlman is serving 25 years in the slammer for bilking investors out of millions.
