Former Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox Released From Home Confinement

Former Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox has completed the home confinement portion of his sentence for a 2015 corruption conviction.

Fox's husband, Marcus LaFond, tells The Associated Press that Fox completed his sentence Wednesday morning. He now begins two years of probation.

Fox was released from prison to a halfway house in August after more than two years behind bars. He has spent the last several months on home confinement.

The former Democratic lawmaker pleaded guilty in 2015 to accepting a bribe of more than $50,000 and taking more than $100,000 from his campaign account dating to 2008.
