Renzi Reports to Prison for 3 Year Sentence

Former Rep. Rick Renzi (R-AZ) “reported to a federal prison in West Virginia on Friday to begin serving a three-year sentence for corruption, money laundering and other convictions,” the AP reports.

“Renzi, 56, was convicted of conspiring to use his congressional post to make companies buy his ex-business associate’s land so the associate could repay a debt to Renzi. A federal jury in Tucson convicted Renzi in June 2013 on 17 of 32 counts, including wire fraud, extortion and racketeering.”
