Former Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski has arrived at a federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut where he is expected to serve the rest of his sentence until his release date in November 2031, according to the Allentown Morning Call.
In March, Pawlowski, 53, was convicted on 47 of 54 charges into allegations of pay-to-play politics in Allentown City Hall. Nine convictions were dismissed before sentencing, according to WFMZ.
Pawlowski resigned in March after winning re-election in November for a fourth term.
The prison Pawlowski will serve the rest of his sentence was the inspiration for the television show “Orange is the New Black”, the Morning Call reports.
