COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) __ A former South Carolina prosecutor jailed for wire fraud has launched a blog to document what he's calling his ``redshirt year'' in prison.

The term is used in sports when a college athlete sits out for a season. It's unclear if Dan Johnson will be able to return to his field.

The State reports Johnson was sentenced last month to a year and a day in federal prison for his role in a scheme that stole about $44,000 in public money. Johnson's first blog post starts with him saying he never imagined he'd be blogging, but he also didn't imagine he'd be convicted of a federal crime.

He says the blog is an effort to chronicle his ``mental, physical, and spiritual growth.'' The posts are bylined 33778-171, Johnson's inmate number.
