MARION, Ill. (WTHI) - We continue to follow the case of Franklin Fennell.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Fennell officially began serving his two-year federal prison sentence.

 

According to online records, Fennell will serve his time at a Marion, Illinois facility.

On April 19th, a federal judge sentenced Franklin Fennell to two years in federal prison.

This was after his conviction in December on all charges related to a kickback scheme.

The jury convicted him of taking thousands of dollars from the Vigo County School Corporation.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Fennell must serve 85 percent of his time...and that's only if his time is served on good behavior.

After doing the math, if Fennell is released early, he is due to be out in February 2020.
