Gary Mulgrew, one of the “NatWest 3,” the British former bankers who pleaded guilty in a U.S. court to a $20 million Enron Corp.-related fraud, became the first of the men to enter a federal prison.
Mulgrew, 46, entered the Federal Correctional Institution in Big Spring this afternoon, according to his lawyer, Reid Figel.
“He reported in accordance with the court order,” said Figel, a lawyer based in Washington, who declined to comment further. He said he went to the prison today with his client.
Last week, U.S. District Judge Ewing Werlein in Houston ordered co-defendant Giles Darby, 45, to surrender at the Allenwood federal prison in White Deer, Pa., on May 7, and David Bermingham, 45, to enter a federal prison facility in Lompoc, Calif., on May 9.
