Abramoff released from Md. prison
The Federal Bureau of Prisons says disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff is at a halfway house somewhere in the mid-Atlantic region after his release from a federal prison in western Maryland.
Spokesman Edmond Ross said Wednesday that Abramoff was released Tuesday from the minimum-security federal prison camp near Cumberland.
He was sentenced in 2006 to nearly six years in prison for a fraudulent Florida casino deal.
