OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A former Oklahoma lawmaker who spent several months locked up after being convicted on a bribery charge has returned home but must wear an ankle monitor.

A jury found former Republican state Representative Randy Terrill guilty in 2013 of offering a then-state Democratic senator an $80,000-a-year state job if she would not run for re-election.

Terrill was sentenced to a year in prison and a $5,000 fine. An appeals court upheld the conviction in May, when Terrill began serving his sentence.

The Oklahoman reports that he was first at the Lexington Assessment Reception Center but moved in June to the Greer County jail, which has a contract with the Corrections Department to hold inmates.

A Corrections Department spokeswoman says he was released Monday.
