Former Orange County sheriff Michael Carona plans to surrender at a federal prison in Colorado on a witness-tampering conviction before his scheduled court date next week, according to his attorney.

Corona is scheduled on Tuesday to appear before the federal judge who sentenced him to 5 and a half years behind bars.

Carona was convicted of trying to get his former assistant sheriff to lie during a federal grand jury investigation.

He's been free on bond pending an appeal, but that appeal was rejected earlier this month.
