`Town officials have nixed an idea for a jailhouse bar. The Select Board, acting as the town liquor board, rejected an inmate’s application to sell liquor from the state prison.
Paul Murphy of Worcester, Mass., is serving time at the Southern State Correctional Facility for aggravated assault, escape and passing bad checks.
He said in an application for a first- and second-class liquor license that he wanted to sell liquor from his home, which he listed as 700 Charlestown Road. That also happens to be the address of the state prison just east of downtown Springfield.’
