#RonCalderon may be on his way home soon

Seven months into his prison term for corruption charges, former California Sen. Ron Calderon is already preparing for possible release.

The Montebello Democrat, pleaded guilty last year to a federal count of “mail fraud through the deprivation of honest services.”

After admitting to undertaking official acts in return for jobs for his children, trips to Las Vegas and tens of thousands of dollars for him and his brother, Calderon was sentenced last October to 42 months in prison. It was a shorter term than prosecutors sought, and far less than the maximum 396 years possible in his original 24-count indictment.
