Aragon Reports To Colo. Prison

By Journal Staff Report

       Former state Senate President Pro Tem Manny Aragon has begun serving his 67-month prison term in Colorado.
    A spokeswoman at the Florence Federal Correctional Complex in Florence, Colo., said Aragon "self-surrendered" at the complex — a facility comprising three federal prisons operated by the Bureau of Prisons — at 11:02 a.m. Wednesday.
    Aragon, 62, pleaded guilty in October to one count of conspiracy and two counts of mail fraud for his role in a scheme to siphon $4.2 million from the Metropolitan Courthouse construction project.
    The Florence complex is about 45 miles south of Colorado Springs.
