BOSTON (CBS) — A former state representative convicted on two assault charges was released from jail Wednesday.

A spokesman for the Middlesex County Sheriff’s office told WBZ-TV Carlos Henriquez was released from the Middlesex jail in Billerica.

Henriquez was sentenced in January to serve six months of a two-and-a-half-year sentence.

Earlier this month, the parole board said Henriquez would be offered parole on or after April 25.

Henriquez must still wear a GPS tracking bracelet and abide by certain conditions of his release.

In February, the House of Representatives voted 146-5 to expel Henriquez.

The chamber also struck down a proposal to merely censure Henriquez instead of ousting him.
