Conrad Black heading back to prison

CHICAGO, July 12 (UPI) -- Ex-media executive Conrad Black has been ordered back to federal prison Sept. 6 to finish his sentence for fraud, a judge's order released Monday shows.

Black, 66, originally was sentenced to 78 months in prison and had served about 29 months before being released pending his appeal. Under his new sentenced handed down last month, he was given 42 months, meaning he has about 13 months left to serve, the Chicago Tribune reported.

The former Hollinger International Inc. chairman was convicted in 2007 of defrauding the one-time parent company of the Chicago Sun-Times. Two of four counts were overturned on appeal.

While he had been imprisoned in Florida previously, the Tribune said federal corrections officials had yet to reveal where he will serve out his remaining term.

U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve also ordered last week that the federal government return $5.5 million to Black, who had forfeited $6.1 million as part of the case against him.
