Former Enron CEO Jeffrey Skilling was released from an Alabama prison. According to the US Bureau of Prisons, he was transferred to a halfway house in an undisclosed location.
The 64-year old Skilling was among those found guilty of defrauding investors in what is still one of the largest bankruptcies in US history. In 2006 he was sentenced to 24-years in prison and a 45-million dollar fine.
The sentence was reduced by a plea deal five years ago. He was re-sentenced to 14-years in exchange for dropping all his appeals.
Enron founder Kenneth Lay was also convicted of conspiracy and fraud. He died of a heart attack six weeks after the trial. A federal judge later threw out the conviction.
