Ex-U.S. House Speaker Hastert to report to prison on Wednesday

Former U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Dennis Hastert is due to report to federal prison on Wednesday to serve a 15-month sentence for a financial crime linked to sexual abuse of wrestlers he coached in the 1960s and 1970s, according to court documents.

Hastert, once a revered figure in Illinois politics, will serve his sentence at the Federal Medical Center in Rochester, Minnesota, said two sources with knowledge of the case, who declined to be named.

The media office at the Federal Bureau of Prisons was not immediately available for comment.

U.S. District Judge Thomas Durkin sentenced Hastert, 74, to 15 months in prison, but the time could be reduced for good behavior. Durkin said he would have given him a longer sentence if it had not been for Hastert's age and poor health.

7. Will he be out by XMAS?

He should do way more time than that, for what he did.
