A judge has ordered a 73-year-old former southern Nevada real estate consultant who was convicted of wire fraud and conspiracy to report to a federal prison camp by noon Friday.
U.S. District Judge Roger Hunt rejected Donald Davidson's request last March to remain free until his appeal is heard. Davidson had been due to begin his 24-month sentence at a camp in Tucson, Ariz., on March 28.
A jury in January found Davidson guilty after he was accused of offering a $50,000 bribe to then-Las Vegas City Councilman Michael
McDonald in 2002.
An FBI wiretap caught Davidson talking by telephone with Lance
Malone, a former Clark County commissioner who was convicted in the
G-Sting corruption case.
Davidson told Malone he had "five dimes to spread around."
