John Harris, Gov. Rod Blagojevich's former chief of staff, will report to McHenry County jail on May 22 to carry out his 10-day sentence his lawyer said today.

Terry Ekl, Harris' attorney, said the U.S. Bureau of Prisons designated Harris there. Federal inmates sometimes serve out shorter sentences at county jails, Ekl said.

Harris was a key witness in Blagojevich's trial and his retrial.

Patti Blagojevich expressed anger after Harris was sentenced asking what was wrong with the world that sent her husband away for 14 years but saw his underling get just 10 days.

Harris cooperated from the day of his arrest -- the same day Blagjoevich was arrested.
