Cooper begins serving sentence

The Cape Girardeau Southeast Missourian reports former Rep. Nathan Cooper, R-Cape Girardeau has begun serving his sentence after pleading guilty to immigration fraud charges:

The former lawmaker is confined to the minimum-security camp adjacent to the main prison in keeping with his request when sentenced in December. Under federal law, Cooper could receive up to 54 days off for good behavior for every year he is in prison, meaning he could be released in as little as 13 months.
