Monica Conyers BustedFederal convict Monica Conyers could be coming home soon, literally.

She's now in an unidentified halfway house in Southeast Michigan and soon may be able to return home with family, a Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman tells Christine Ferretti of The Detroit News.

Conyers, the wife of U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Detroit, was moved last week from a West Virginia federal prison to a residential re-entry facility in Eastern District of Michigan that's overseen by the Detroit Community Corrections office.

"She could potentially transfer to home confinement. . . . It depends on the situation and the program needs," spokesman Chris Burke said. "This is a possibility for most inmates, and most do take advantage of the program." . . .

Inmates sometimes return to their former residence or they stay with family members, Burke said.

The former Detroit councilwoman is serving a 37-month bribery sentence that ends in mid-May.

She entered a federal women's prison camp in West Virginia in September 2010 after pleading guilty to accepting at least $6,000 for her deciding vote on the 2007 Synagro Technologies sludge contract.
