UPDATE: A former state representative was released from prison after being convicted of political bribery.
Prosecutors alleged former state Rep. Randy Terrill, a Republican, offered former state Sen. Debbie Leftwich, a Democrat, an $80,000-a-year job at the State Medical Examiner’s office in 2010 so she would not run for re-election.
A jury convicted Terrill in October 2013.
On Aug. 31, 2015, Terrill was fitted with a GPS unit and was released from prison.
Officials say he will serve the rest of his sentence with the GPS monitor. Once his sentence ends on Jan. 16, he will be on probation for one year.
