Former RI Speaker heading to prison

09914-070 that's Former House Speaker Gordon Fox's new prison identification number.

The 53-year-old is required to report to prison by 2pm on Tuesday.

Back in March Fox plead guilty to charges of bribery, wire fraud and filing a false tax return. He was sentenced to serve 36 months in prison.

WPRO reporting he'll serve out that sentence at a minimum security satellite camp of the U.S. Penitentiary in Canaan Pennsylvania.

A Bureau of Prisons spokesperson telling ABC 6 News that after Fox is processed and checked in he will quickly be assigned living quarters. We're told it will likely be dorm style housing with bunk beds.

Every prisoner that is medically cleared is required to get a job. Those positions vary from work in the food services department to work in a maintenance shop

In terms of communication, Fox will have access to telephone calls, an electronic messaging system and visits from family and friends.

We're told that inmates are limited to 300 minutes per month for phone calls. According to the rule book for prisoners a maximum phone conversation can last 15 minutes.
