RALEIGH — A candidate for Raleigh City Council is headed back to federal prison.
Lent C. Carr II, who is seeking the politically unaffiliated District C seat in the October election, was sentenced to seven months in prison for violating supervised release, said Deputy U.S. Marshal Bryan Konig.
It stems from a fraud case in 2000. Carr, of 419 Glenbrook Drive in Raleigh, spent time in federal prison after pleaded guilty to federal charges of bank fraud and conspiracy to commit mail fraud.
U.S. District Judge Malcolm J. Howard in Greenville determined today that Carr violated the terms of the supervised release, Konig said.
Edwin Walker, the assistant federal public defender representing Carr in the matter, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
