A former Mobile County commissioner who was sentenced to two years in jail on perjury and harassment charges has been released.
Al.com reports 51-year-old Stephen Nodine was released Monday morning. Nodine was charged in the death of his 45-year-old ex-girlfriend Angel Downs but a jury deadlocked on murder charges.
Nodine was instead sentenced on a perjury charge for lying about being able to afford an attorney, harassing Downs and an ethics charge linked to his use of a county-issued truck.
Nodine has maintained that he was not involved in Downs' death.
