William Beavers reported to prison Monday after he was found guilty of tax evasion for failing to report campaign money as income.

Beavers' attorney says the six-month sentence will be served at a Minnesota prison. Federal appeals court judges have rejected the former Cook County commissioner's attempt to delay his term while he appeals his corruption conviction.

Beavers' attorneys argued that with no prior history, Beavers should be allowed to postpone his date to appear at prison because otherwise, his appeal would likely be decided well after he was released.
