Imprisoned former Gov. Rod Blagojevich made his first phone call home just hours after settling into his new home inside a Colorado prison.

Attorney Sheldon Sorosky told the Chicago Sun-Times that Blagojevich called his wife Patty to give her assurance that he had arrived and was alright.

According to the report, Blagojevich described the prison as "a nice place." He spoke only to Patti.

Blagojevich began serving his 14-year prison sentence for corruption around midday Thursday.
