Chuck Colson in grave condition


Watergate figure Charles Colson is in grave condition two weeks after undergoing brain surgery.

Earlier today, the Christian Broadcast Network had reported Colson had died. However, the head of the Prison Fellowship Ministries says the organization's founder "will soon be home with the Lord."

Colson's condition began deteriorating Tuesday after some signs of recovery.

Colson is 80 years old. He served as President Richard Nixon's special counsel and spent seven months in prison due to Watergate.

Colson became a born-again Christian and became an advocate for ministering to prison inmates.
