Key won't turn in ignition

(1999 Ford Contour)
in Midland, MI on April 23, 2010
I just bought a 1999 Ford Contour and after I brought it home and turned it off or whatever I came back out to drive it and my key wouldn't turn in the ignition. The key won't budge forward or backwards. I tried resetting the system by unplugging the battery, but that didn't work. How do I fix this?
