Citing coronavirus, Collins seeks
Delay in starting prison sentence

His legal team says he 'has additional risk factors, which
place him at a high risk of contracting, suffering 
severe illness from COVID-19 if exposed'

BUFFALO, N.Y. 4/1/20 — Former Congressman Chris Collins is asking to push back the start of his prison sentence yet again, this time citing coronavirus. Collins is seeking to delay the start of his sentence to June 23.

The legal team for Collins, Baker Hostetler, said in paperwork filed Wednesday that "Mr. Collins is older than 65 and has additional risk factors, which place him at a high risk of contracting and suffering severe illness from COVID-19 if exposed to the virus."
The document goes on to say that "it would be particularly dangerous for an elderly person with underlying health conditions" such as Collins to report to prison now, during a nationwide pandemic.
Collins was accused of illegally leaking confidential information about a biopharmaceutical company to his son, Cameron, and Stephen Zarsky, the father of his son's fiancée. Collins was sentenced to 26 months in prison on January 17.
