Conrad Black heads back to jail
Media baron's year of bail ends, he's back for up to 13 months for fraud convictions.
His year of freedom while on bail appealing his convictions if over, and Conrad Black is heading back to jail -- for as much as 13 months.
The Canadian Press has the story:
TORONTO -- Former media baron Conrad Black has returned to prison to finish his sentence for fraud.
Black will spend the time at the Federal Correctional Institution in Miami, a low security prison about 50 kilometres from the city's downtown.
Black had been free on bail for about a year after an appeal court reversed two of his three fraud convictions.
He was resentenced in June by Judge Amy St. Eve, who also handed down his original term of 78-months in 2007. With credits for time already served, Black was ordered to spend up to another 13 months behind bars.
However, he may wind up spending as little as six to eight months in prison before he is released.
Black spent his first stint behind bars at the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex in central Florida.
Black's empire once included the Chicago Sun-Times, The Daily Telegraph of London and newspapers across the U.S. and Canada.
