Former Lottery Commissioner Begins Prison Sentence

Former state lottery commissioner Kevin Geddings has reported to a federal prison in Georgia to begin serving his four-year term for federal corruption charges.

Geddings was due to report by noon to the Federal Correctional
Institution in Jesup, Georgia, the facility closest to his family's
home in St. Augustine, Florida. One of Geddings' lawyers says
Geddings turned himself in at noon, and a records officer at Jesup
said he was processed shortly afterward.

A motion filed Sunday night sought to allow Geddings to delay
the start of his sentence by one month. But U-S District Court
Judge James Dever rejected that request.
