Former Ohio congressman to be released
(WOUB) - Former Ohio congressman Bob Ney is scheduled to be released Saturday from a halfway house after completing his sentence in a bribery scandal.

Nay, a Republican who served six House terms, has served nearly a year and a half of his original 2 1/2 years prison sentence.

The sentence was reduced after he completed treatment for alcohol problems.

Ney admitted accepting gifts and campaign donations arranged by lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his associates.
