DETROIT (WWJ) - She went from Detroit City Council, to prison, to an auto repair shop on Michigan Avenue.

Ex-Detroit Councilwoman and convicted felon Monica Conyers is spending her work days filling out paperwork and answering phones.

A manager at Metro Tech Collision in Detroit told WWJ Newsradio 950 Conyers is a very hard worker and has been humble in her new role. She was hired two months ago when she left a halfway house.

Conyers entered prison in 2010 after pleading guilty in 2009 to taking bribes while on the Detroit council. She was released in late December after serving 27 months at Alderson Federal Prison Camp, often referred to as “Camp Cupcake.”

Conyers remains under house arrest and her boss said she’s not allowed to talk to the media.
