Even in Slammer, Pearlman's a Dirty Rat

7/30/2008 9:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Ethically, he did the right thing. Realistically, he's in the wrong place to be ethical. He should have presented it through his attorney under the condition of anonimity. Now, he'll be VERY fortunate to live out his term. Being a rat among vermin isn't good for your health, - especially when living in a mousetrap.

Ok, so not only is he a perv and a thief, but he also is not very smart. Once the word is out, I give him about 3 weeks before you know what...

He's a dirty rat because he helped nail a cop killer? Sorry, but I don't think so.

It may have been the right thing to do but it wasn't smart...he just upped his sentence from 25 yrs to the death penalty! I can only imagine how much his fellow inmates are going to love him after this. I guess the fat bastard is probably going to die of a heart attack before his sentence is up anyways.

Why are people saying horrible things about this man ? He is doing the time for his crime and I for one would definitely turn someone in for killing anyone BUT he should have went to his attorney in private and let him (attorney)notify prison officials/police dept.
