Jim Black, the former North Carolina House Speaker now serving time in federal prison on corruption charges, has paid a court-ordered $1 million fine, which will benefit the Wake County school system.

"I always intended to leave a portion of my estate to help secure the enhancement of North Carolina's public educational system," Black said in a statement. "And while this payment comes a bit premature, I gladly give it knowing that North Carolina's children will be the beneficiaries."
