LEE COUNTY, Fla. - The deadline for former Lee County Commissioner Tammy Hall to report to prison has arrived.

Hall has turned herself in at the penitentiary in Coleman, near Orlando, to start her six-month prison term, after pleading guilty to using campaign donations to pay her personal bills.

Because she is a convicted felon, Hall cannot serve in any public office or vote after her release. Hall must also complete 250 hours of community service.

She will have to pay a fine of between $6,000 and $60,000 to be determined at later date. A restitution hearing will be held on March 14.
