Former Congressman Headed To Prison To Be Honored At Rally

Posted December 28, 2005

— A former Congressman sentenced to four years in prison is getting a send-off from his supporters Wednesday.

Frank Ballance will be honored at the "People's Freedom Rally" in Roanoke Rapids.

Ballance was the guest of honor at a luncheon earlier in December. He received a 4-year sentence for conspiring to commit mail fraud and money laundering.

Ballance is expected to report to prison Friday.
