Former Olympic gold-medal winner Marion Jones began serving her six-month federal prison sentence at a facility in Texas today. 

Jones, 32, arrived just before noon at the Federal Medical Center-Carswell in Fort Worth.

      In January, a federal judge in White Plains, N.Y., sentenced Jones to six months in prison and two years’ probation (during which she will be required to perform 800 hours of community service) for lying to federal investigators about her steroid use and a check-fraud scheme. Jones had until March 11 to begin her sentence.
