CHICAGO (AP) — A federal judge in Chicago has resentenced former media mogul Conrad Black to 3½ years in prison. Prosecutors say he will be given credit for the about two years he served.

The resentencing by U.S. Judge Amy St. Eve on Friday followed an appellate court decision last year.

That court tossed out two of Black's 2007 fraud convictions. But it upheld his convictions for fraud and obstruction of justice. It said St. Eve would have to sentence Black again for those two counts.

The Canadian-born businessman was freed on bail from a Florida prison last year as he appealed his convictions for defrauding investors in Hollinger International Inc. He served two years of his original 6½-year sentence.

Black's empire once included the Chicago Sun-Times and The Daily Telegraph of London.
