Don Siegleman to be released from Prison

Breaking news from

Former Gov. Don Siegelman will be released from prison, after the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals granted him an appeal bond, the lead prosecutor in the case said.

Acting U.S. Attorney Louis Franklin said he received a courtesy call from the court today. "He's going to be released," Franklin said.

He said he was disappointed but added, "The 11th Circuit has the discretion to do that, and I respect that."

This is SUPERB news! I am very happy for Don and his family. The real fun will begin when his convictions are overturned. The fallout from that should be incredibly entertaining.

Welcome Home Don!!
