Coniglio to report to prison next month

Former state Sen. Joe Coniglio (D-Paramus) will spend the next 30 months in a central Pennsylvania federal prison, The Record reports.

Coniglio was convicted in April of steering $1 million in state grants to the Hackensack University Medical Center, which employed him as a consultant. He starts his sentence on Nov. 9th, when he will report to the Lewisburg, PA facility, which has both a high security section and a minimum-security satellite camp.

In September, Coniglio filed to appeal his conviction.
