ANN ARBOR (WXYZ) - Former State Supreme Court Justice Diane Hathaway wants out of federal prison, according to a court filing released today.
Hathaway is currently serving a one-year-and-one-day prison sentence prompted by a 7 Action News investigation that revealed she committed bank fraud by hiding assets from her lender.
Hathaway argued that she ought to have her sentenced reduced by six months or be released to home confinement or a halfway house until her prison term ends this summer.
But the Bureau of Prisons, she says, won't allow Hathaway to reside in a halfway house because of the risk of coming into contact with a defendant she previously sentenced.
Since August, Hathaway has been an inmate in a campus-like women's facility nicknamed "Camp Cupcake." It's housed high-profile inmates like Martha Stewart and former Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers.
