A former South Carolina county councilman has been released from federal prison after being sentenced for illegally accessing computers.
Multiple media outlets reported former Greenville County Councilman Tony Trout was released Thursday from a prison in West Virginia.
Trout was sentenced to a year and a day in prison after a jury convicted him of illegally accessing the computers of County Administrator Joe Kernell and Yahoo and of intercepting and disclosing electronic communication.
Trout began the sentence last September.
Prisons spokesman Edmond Ross says Trout was released early because of his credit for good conduct.
