RALEIGH, N.C. — 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.
