TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Former Congressman Rick Renzi said he wants to serve his prison sentence at a different federal prison.

He is just days away from starting his 3-year sentence. Renzi was convicted of public corruption and money laundering.

He requested to be put into a minimum security prison camp in Maryland and that request was granted. Now, Renzi's lawyers ask he be assigned to a different minimum security camp in Virginia.

Renzi is supposed to report to prison on Monday.
