Former Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter, who was found guilty of conspiring to misuse campaign funds, will be serving an 11-month sentence at a West Texas prison camp, according to his attorney.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that Hunter is scheduled to report to Federal Correctional Institute La Tuna on Jan. 4. He will serve in its adjacent minimum-security satellite camp.

Hunter’s prison sentence comes after fighting a 60-count indictment for more than a year before pleading guilty to a conspiracy charge in December.

His wife, Margaret Hunter, pleaded guilty in June 2019 of conspiring with her husband to misuse more than $250,000 in campaign money on personal expenses such as travel, groceries, fast food and private school tuition.
