WASHINGTON — A federal judge on Friday denied a request by President Trump’s friend Roger J. Stone Jr. for a two-month delay before he begins serving his prison term, despite the fact that his motion was unopposed by the Justice Department.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia granted Mr. Stone an additional two weeks before he must report to a federal prison in Jesup, Ga., but ordered him placed under home confinement in the meantime.

The judge’s order seemed to reflect some impatience about why Mr. Stone, a former campaign adviser to Mr. Trump, had not yet been imprisoned. In a trial Judge Jackson oversaw, a jury convicted him in November on seven felonies, including lying to federal investigators, tampering with a witness and impeding a congressional inquiry. The judge sentenced him in February to 40 months in prison.
