The father of ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has reported to a Texas prison to start serving a 15-month sentence in a corruption case that led to a 28-year sentence for his son.
A jury in March found Bernard Kilpatrick guilty of a tax crime, while acquitting him or failing to agree on other charges.
U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds sentenced the father Oct. 19. WXYZ-TV says that 72-year-old Bernard Kilpatrick surrendered Tuesday.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The Detroit News says he's being housed at the Federal Correctional Institution, Seagoville. The U.S government describes itself as a "low-security" prison for men.
The prison is about 15 miles southeast of Dallas. Kwame Kilpatrick's wife and children live in suburban Dallas.
