CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A former West Virginia Supreme Court justice at the center of an impeachment scandal has reported to federal prison for his two-year sentence.
The Bureau of Prisons says Allen Loughry reported to a South Carolina prison on Friday.
Loughry was sentenced earlier this year after being found guilty on charges including mail and wire fraud connected to his personal use of state cars and fuel cards.
Loughry has repeatedly denied benefiting personally from trips he took when he became a justice in 2013. His lawyer declined to comment when reached by phone Friday.
A federal judge said Loughry showed no remorse.
Loughry and three other justices were impeached last year over questions involving lavish office renovations that evolved into accusations of corruption and neglect of duty.
