Black Heads To Prison

Former House Speaker Jim Black headed to a Pennsylvania prison Friday.

Black will serve his 63-month prison sentence in a
minimum-security federal prison in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania.

The Mecklenburg Democrat pleaded guilty to federal charges and
acknowledged in state court that authorities had enough evidence
for a conviction.

He has admitted illegally taking more than $25,000 in cash from
several chiropractors while pushing their agenda in the state
Legislature.

Black left the Franklin County jail in handcuffs and boarded a
van with other inmates.
