Sprung from captivity by a fortuitous Supreme Court ruling, former media mogul Conrad Black is headed back to jail for a 13-month term. Black was convicted of fraud and obstruction of justice in 2007 and sentenced to six and a half years after scheming to take millions from the unwinding of major publisher Hollinger International.

Black’s wife collapsed in the courtroom following the sentence and was taken out by medical personnel.
