Former Rep. Ney to report to prison next week
Bob Ney, the former Republican congressman convicted for his role in the Jack Abramoff scandal, will start serving his 30-month prison sentence next week.

Ney reports to the federal penitentiary in Morgantown, West Virginia, on March 1. It's a minimum-security facility where Ney will receive substance abuse treatment.

Ney pleaded guilty to accepting bribes from Abramoff in exchange for legislative actions. He promised to help two Texas tribes reopen their casinos after taking their campaign contributions and using their money to take a lavish trip to Scotland.
