Ex-Connecticut Governor Rowland released early from prison
Former Connecticut Governor John Rowland was released early from prison Friday after serving more than 10 months on a corruption charge.
Rowland was released from Loretto Federal Correctional Institution in western Pennsylvania. Once he arrives back in Connecticut, Rowland will be fitted with an electronic ankle bracelet and be placed under house arrest. He will also have to perform 300 hours of community service.
Rowland pleaded guilty in December 2004 to one count of conspiracy to steal honest services, a combination of mail and tax fraud. The plea stemmed from Rowland?s acceptance of more than $100,000 in vacations and chartered trips. Rowland resigned as governor in July 2004 amid the corruption investigation.
