Former Assemblymember Jimmy Meng is halfway through his one month sentence for federal wire fraud charges.

Disgraced ex-Assemblymember Jimmy Meng is halfway through his one month sentence, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

The 69-year-old father of Congressmember Grace Meng has served two weeks so far in the low-to-minimum security Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) at Fort Dix, New Jersey. He is slated to be released April 18.

Following his prison sentence, Meng will serve four months of house arrest and two years of probation. He was also ordered to pay $30,000 in fines and serve 750 hours of community service.

The former lawmaker was facing a maximum of 20 years in jail and a fine of $250,000 for scamming thousands from a state court defendant.

He was caught on July 24 at his Flushing lumber yard accepting a fruit basket containing $80,000 cash in bribe money.
