Randell Shelton, middleman in the bribery/kickback scheme involving former legislators Micah Neal and Jon Woods and Oren Paris III, president of Ecclesia College, is reporting to federal prison today to begin a six-year sentence. He’s reporting to a prison in Seagoville, Texas.  Federal records show he’s being held at a low security prison in Beaumont, Texas.

Neal pleaded guilty. Shelton and Woods are appealing and Paris struck a deal that allows him to join in if their appeals are successful. Woods is in prison in Fort Worth. Paris reports to Seagoville on Wednesday. Neal was sentenced to home detention.
