Former New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver will be returned to federal prison after federal authorities denied him home confinement, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.
The person could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
Silver was released Tuesday from a federal prison on furlough while he awaited potential placement to home confinement. The 77-year-old Silver had been in prison since August, where he was serving more than six-year sentence at a prison in Otisville.
His return to prison came after the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan, which prosecuted Silver's case, said it had notified the Bureau of Prisons that it had opposed Silver's release.
