LOS ANGELES (AP) – The former sheriff of Los Angeles County has reported to prison to begin serving a prison sentence for a corruption conviction.
Lee Baca was sentenced to a three-year term for obstructing an FBI probe into corruption in the nation’s largest sheriff’s department.
The 77-year-old had been free on bail while appealing his conviction.
The U.S. Supreme Court rejected his last appeal in January.
Baca is being held at the Federal Correctional Institution La Tuna, near El Paso, Texas.
