Kerrigan brother wants to go back to Mass. prison

Former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan's brother wants to go back to a Massachusetts prison to serve the rest of his sentence after his conviction on assault and battery in connection with the 2010 death of their father.

Mark Kerrigan was released July 27 from prison, where he was serving 2 1/2 years following his May 2011 conviction.

A Probation Service spokeswoman says the 47-year-old Kerrigan is scheduled in court Wednesday, when he's expected to ask a judge to return him to prison to serve the remaining six months of his sentence.

The spokeswoman says Kerrigan isn't accused of violating probation but by going back to prison would be exempt from conditions of early release, including alcohol counseling and anger management classes.

Kerrigan's lawyer hasn't returned a call seeking comment.
