Roger Stone will be reporting to prison a month from tomorrow. Back in February, Donald Trump’s longtime friend was sentenced to 40 months behind bars.
The Associated Press reports that it was thought that Stone would have to report to a federal quarantine site before heading to prison, but that’s no longer the case:
Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman Sue Allison told The Associated Press that Stone is supposed to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons by June 30 and will not be required to go to a quarantine facility. That’s because he’s voluntarily surrendering, she said. The agency has an exemption for those who are voluntarily surrendering, absolving them of the requirement to be sent to a quarantine site, a policy designed to stop the spread of coronavirus that has exploded in the federal prison system. The exception was not laid out in the policy the agency made public last week.
Stone was convicted of lying to Congress in connection with his work on the Trump campaign back in 2016, among other charges.
