Disgraced judge to report to prison on Monday

Disgraced federal judge and convicted felon Samuel Kent's life is over as he knows it. On Monday he is to report to the Devens Federal Medical Center outside Boston, Massachusetts, to begin serving his 33-month sentence for obstruction of justice.

He reports to prison still receiving his salary of $174,000, though that is expected to change in the next few months as impeachment proceedings have been "fast-tracked." Just yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee voted 28-0 to refer the four articles of impeachment to the full House of Representatives.

The House is expected to vote in favor of indictment before the 4th of July and the Senate is expected to decide Kent's fate before its August recess.
