Remember the former North Shore DA who was convicted on corruption charges?
He's heading to prison in April.
Nearly three years after being convicted on corruption charges, former North Shore district attorney Walter Reed has been ordered to report for prison to begin serving his four-year sentence.
Reed must surrender by April 1 to start serving his sentence for mail fraud, wire fraud, lying on his income tax returns and other charges, U.S. District Court Judge Eldon Fallon ruled Tuesday (Feb. 26).
Fallon sided with federal prosecutors, who argued in court Tuesday that Reed should begin serving his sentence immediately since a panel of the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously rejected his appeal on Nov. 5, and the full court on Jan. 23 refused to re-hear Reed’s case.
Pro-tip: despite what you've heard, don't beat someone up on your first day in prison thinking it will make you look like a badass. You'll just end up losing teeth.
