DETROIT -- Former Detroit city councilwoman Monica Conyers has reported to a federal prison in West Virginia to begin a 37-month sentence for corruption.

The Bureau of Prisons says Conyers arrived Friday afternoon at the minimum-security camp in Alderson, W.Va., about 500 miles from Detroit.

It's the same place where Martha Stewart was sent after being convicted in a stock-trading case in 2004.

Conyers admitted taking bribes to support a sludge contract. She is the wife of U.S. Rep. John Conyers, a Detroit Democrat and chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
