Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos was released from prison Friday morning after serving 12 days of a 14-day sentence in Wisconsin.

Papadopoulos was released from a federal prison in Oxford, Wisconsin, around 9 a.m. local time, according to CNN. Now that he has been released, Papadopoulos will have to serve 12 months of supervised probation, pay a $9,500 fine and complete 200 hours of community service.

This all comes after Papadopoulous accepted a plea deal from Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller related to charges that the man lied to the FBI about his interactions with Russian nationals during the presidential campaign.
