Kerrigan's brother wants to go back to Mass. jail

BOSTON (AP) - Former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan's brother wants to go back to a Massachusetts jail 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 jail, 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 jail to serve the remaining six to eight months of his sentence.

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

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