NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has reported to a federal prison in Texarkana, Texas, to begin serving a 10-year sentence.

Nagin arrived at the facility shortly before noon Monday. New Orleans television stations showed images of Nagin hugging family members in a parking lot before he entered the lockup.

The Bureau of Prisons operates a low-security prison there with an adjacent minimum security camp. It was not immediately clear which one Nagin was entering.

Meanwhile, a public defender in New Orleans is pursuing an appeal of Nagin's February conviction on charges including bribery and money-laundering. The charges stemmed from the Democrat's two terms as mayor from 2002-2010.
