A federal judge has denied former Pilot Flying J president Mark Hazelwood’s request to delay reporting to prison to serve his sentence for his fraud conviction until after Christmas and New Year’s, Knoxnews reports. "If the court attempted to set (prison) dates that did not conflict with any religious holidays, it would be unable to set any dates at all," U.S. District Judge Curtis Collier wrote. "Easter, the most important Christian religious holiday, would come just a few short months after Christmas." Hazelwood will now report Nov. 26 to begin his 12-and-a-half year sentence.
