Former Republican Sen. John McGee was released from the Ada County Jail at about 10:30 a.m. Saturday, according to the sheriffs office.
McGee was released five days before his originally-scheduled release date because jailers say he's behaved while behind bars.
The 39-year-old from Caldwell had been sentenced to at least 44 days in jail on Aug. 21 after pleading guilty to charges linked to allegations of sexual harassment levied against him by a female state Senate staffer.
He has paid the staffer at least $960 in court-ordered restitution, in addition to having to cover more than $1,500 in court costs. He also must fulfill terms of a separate probation-violation conviction.
