Former Chicago police commander Jon Burge is expected to report to prison this week.

He'll be serving his time at the same prison complex that houses notorious Ponzie schemer Bernie Madoff.

Burge is scheduled to arrive at the Butner Federal Correctional Complex near Raleigh, North Carolina, by Wednesday afternoon. In January, he was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison for lying about the torture of suspects.

Madoff is serving a 150-year sentence at the same complex, which has both medium- and low-security facilities.
