Zach Scruggs, a lawyer who was sent to prison along with his father in a judicial bribery case, has been released from a halfway house in Tupelo.
Scruggs was sent to the halfway house in February as part of a 14-month sentence for misprision of a felony, having knowledge of an attempted bribery scheme and not reporting it.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons Web site says he was released Wednesday.
Scruggs and his father, former lawyer Dickie Scruggs, were imprisoned in a conspiracy to bribe a Lafayette County judge for a favorable ruling in a civil lawsuit.
The elder Scruggs also pleaded guilty in the corruption case involving Hinds County Circuit Judge Bobby DeLaughter.
Dickie Scruggs is serving a total of seven years. DeLaughter hasn't been sentenced.
