A man who took hostages at one of Hillary Rodham Clinton's New Hampshire presidential campaign offices in 2007 has been released from state prison.

Leeland Eisenberg pleaded guilty to seven felonies and one misdemeanor last year for taking several people hostage using fake explosives at Clinton's office in Rochester.

He was arrested after an hourslong standoff in which no one was hurt.

Eisenberg was released Wednesday morning. His sentence was originally three years but was cut short for good behavior.

He will be monitored and be under a daily curfew.
