The former Allen County sheriff convicted of federal crimes now has a date to report to prison.

Former Sheriff, Sam Crish, has a date and location set to report to federal prison

According to his attorney, Sam Crish is scheduled to report on Novevember 18, 2019, to the Federal Correctional Institution in Welch, West Virginia. That's a medium-security prison with more than 1,600 inmates. Crish was sentenced in September to 11 years and four months in federal prison. He took a plea deal and pleaded guilty to two counts of extortion, two counts of bribery, and one count of making a false statement. He was also sentenced to pay back $606,000 in restitution. We don't know how many victims there were because those documents were sealed. Crish is eligible for early release, but not until serving 85% of his sentence.
