Conrad Black must go back to prison by September 6, court says

Conrad Black must report to prison by Sept. 6, a federal court in Chicago said. He was sentenced to an additional year and has been out on bail during his appeal.
Lord Black’s original 6 1/2-year term was reduced to 3 1/2 years last month by U.S. District Judge Amy J. St. Eve after the former newspaper publisher successfully appealed two of three mail fraud counts of which he was convicted in 2007.
St. Eve, in an order dated July 5 and posted on the court’s electronic docket today, recommended that Lord Black, 66, be returned to the low-security prison at Coleman, Florida, where he spent 29 months before being granted bail last year.
