AP source: Sheldon Silver released from prison on furlough

NEW YORK – Former New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has been released from a federal prison on furlough while he awaits potential placement to home confinement, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press.

Silver, 77, began serving his more than six-year sentence at a federal prison in Otisville, New York, in August after years of fending off going behind bars in a corruption case.

He has been released to his home while awaiting the final decision on whether he can serve the rest of his sentence there in home confinement, the person said.
