SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A man convicted for a Josephine County killing at age 14 has been released from the Oregon State Penitentiary.

Grants Pass Daily Courier reports (https://goo.gl/EEI5jw ) that Trevor Walraven, who is now 31, was released from prison Wednesday.

Walraven was sentenced to 30 years in prison after he and his older brother carjacked and killed Rogue River lodge owner Bill Hull in 1998.

In September 2014, a judge said Walraven qualified for release under an Oregon law that allows a “second look” for some juvenile offenders after they’ve served half their sentences.

The state has contested the release, arguing that Walraven’s case wasn’t eligible for a second look. The state’s appeal is still pending.

Walraven’s attorney says his client already has a job lined up and will live in Marion County.
