Former Gov. Edwin Edwards has been released from federal prison and is being allowed to complete his sentence in home detention, rather than in a halfway house.

Edwards had served more than eight years in prison on a corruption conviction.

He arrived at the halfway house at 7 a.m. Thursday with his daughter Anna. Asked it how it felt to be out of prison, Edwards quipped, ”I don’t know yet.” He left two hours later, driven to Anna Edwards’ house.

A spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Chris Burke, says Edwards was granted home confinement. There, he’ll be monitored and stay in close contact with the halfway house and federal corrections officials.
