(CNN) - After a day of conflicting information about his whereabouts, a Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman confirmed that former U.S. Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. has indeed reported to federal prison to serve a 30 month sentence.
Jackson entered a federal prison camp in Butner, NC, on Tuesday morning.
Jackson's spokeswoman earlier had said that he reported to prison on Monday, but prison officials told CNN that Jackson was not in custody until Tuesday morning.
The bureau said it could not address the discrepancy.
Jackson's spokesperson didn't immediately return CNN's calls for comment Tuesday.
The 48-year old was sentenced in august after he pleaded guilty to misuse of $750,000 in campaign funds, money that went to personal expenses like vacations, fur coats and movie memorabilia.
His wife, Sandra Jackson, was also caught up in the case and pleaded guilty to filing false tax returns that failed to account for hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxable income.
She was sentenced to 12 months in prison.
