On March 27 John Haggerty Jr. began serving his sentence for taking $750,000 from Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s 2009 re-election campaign.

The Queens political operative convicted two years ago of stealing thousands of dollars from the mayor’s re-election campaign has begun his prison sentence.

John Haggerty Jr. was received in Ulster Correctional Facility on March 27, according to the state’s Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.

The 44-year-old Republican consultant from Forest Hills was found guilty in October 2011 of second-degree grand larceny and second-degree money laundering for pilfering $750,000 from Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s 2009 re-election campaign.

He will serve at least one year and four months in the medium-security, all male Napanoch facility with a maximum sentence of four years.

Haggerty is eligible for parole in December, according to the Department of Corrections. His earliest release date is July 12, 2014.
