Former Mayor Richard Daley’s nephew, Richard Vanecko, began serving his 60-day jail sentence Friday in McHenry County.

His confinement in McHenry is a result of the political implications of his case.

Vanecko pleaded guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter in the 2004 death of David Koschman on Division Street.

The 39-year old Vanecko will serve another 60 days of home confinement, followed by two-and-a-half years of probation.

He will also pay $20,000 in restitution to Koschman’s estate, and issue a formal apology.
