    Former Connecticut Gov. John Rowland is a free man.

    Rowland was released from federal custody on Friday, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons. He had been in a halfway house in New York since January after being released early from a federal prison in Pennsylvania.

    The former governor resigned from office in 2004 and served 10 months in prison following a corruption scandal.

    Rowland was sentenced to prison again in September 2014 after he was convicted of campaign fraud, conspiracy and obstruction of justice. He began to serve his second sentence in September 2016.
