Court Won’t Take Up Rowland’s Second Conviction
The U.S. Supreme Court won’t be taking up former Gov. John G. Rowland’s latest conviction for violating campaign laws during the 2010 and 2012 Congressional contest in Connecticut’s 5th Congressional District.
Rowland was sentenced to 30 months in prison for trying to hide payments for work he did for two congressional candidates.
Last June, a federal appeals court upheld Rowland’s 2014 conviction. His petition to the Supreme Court was one of his last shots at attempting to overturn his conviction.
Rowland is currently serving his sentence in a federal prison in Lewisburg, PA. The Federal Bureau of Prisons says his release date is Nov. 27, 2018.
