Wright working his way through prison system

Former state Rep. Thomas Wright is working his way through the North Carolina prison system. Wright was convicted on three counts of fraud yesterday in Raleigh and sentenced to as much as eight years in prison. He's currently at the craven correctional institution in Vanceboro. The superintendent tells us that it's only a processing center. Wright will be there a couple of weeks while it's decided where he should spend his sentence. The superintendent says Wright is in a cell by himself, where he spends 23 hours a day. He comes out for an hour to have recreation and a shower.
