Judge cuts short ex-La. gov.'s court supervision
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A federal judge has agreed to cut short former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards' court supervision following his release from prison.
Edwards was sentenced to three years of supervised release. His supervision lasted about 18 months before U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson agreed Wednesday to end it early.
Edwards served eight years in federal prison and six months of home detention after he was convicted in 2000 for his role in a riverboat casino licensing scandal.
Jackson said Edwards fully complied with all of the terms of his supervision. Prosecutors and probation officials didn't object to Edwards' request for it to end early.
A reality television show about the 85-year-old Edwards and his third wife, 34-year-old Trina Scott Edwards, is scheduled to debut later this month on A&E.
