Ex-NYC Top Cop to Start Federal Prison Term

Monday, 17 May 2010 11:57 AM


Former New York City police Commissioner Bernard Kerik is due to report to federal prison to begin his four-year term for tax fraud, lying to the White House and other felonies.

The federal Bureau of Prisons says it won't identify Kerik's prison until after he reports Monday.

Kerik was police commissioner when the World Trade Center was leveled by terrorists and was declared a hero for his steely resolve.

He pleaded guilty in November.

Kerik's career peaked when he was nominated to lead the Department of Homeland Security. He admitted that during the vetting process he lied about his past.

Kerik is still claiming he's been wronged. He says he pleaded guilty in November because he was "financially helpless."
