Former state Sen. Marc Panepinto will serve a two-month prison sentence at a federal facility in Massachusetts.

The Buffalo Democrat will serve at the Federal Medical Center in Devens, MA. The Bureau of Prisons Database says the facility houses inmates at various security levels, in addition to specializing in long-term medical and mental health care.

Panepinto pleaded guilty to an attempted coverup of unwanted sexual advances to a female staffer and was sentenced in December. He was given time to straighten out his affairs, which included a $9,500 fine and a state ethics regulators assessment of $10,000 for the coverup.
