The man who ran Florida's prison system for years could soon become a prisoner himself.
Tuesday, former corrections chief James Crosby admitted to taking more than $100,000 in kickbacks from a contractor for the prison system.
Crosby was arraigned in federal court in Jacksonville on Tuesday after reaching a deal with prosecutors.
Gov. Jeb Bush said, "I feel bad for him. I'm disappointed, more importantly, that he violated a trust and to his credit is cooperating with federal authorities and has accepted his fate."
Crosby and former regional director Allen Clark both pleaded guilty to taking kickbacks from a company that runs prison canteens. Prosecutors say both can expect up to eight years in prison.
