BAY MINETTE, Ala. (AP) - A former Mobile County commissioner who was sentenced to two years in jail on perjury and harassment charges has been released.

Al.com reports (https://bit.ly/1sai2NT ) 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.
