UPDATE: Traficant left prison at 10:53 a.m. EST today

Published: Wed, September 2, 2009 @ 12:00 p.m.

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Former Ohio Rep. James Traficant has been freed from a Minnesota prison after serving seven years for bribery and racketeering.

Traficant, a nine-term Democrat from Youngstown, walked out of the Federal Prison Medical Center at 10:53 a.m. EST time today.

Traficant, wearing a gray T-shirt, white shorts and white knee-high socks, didn't respond to reporters' questions before stepping into a waiting cab that drove off.

My guess is that the conversion is going to be quite difficult for you!

It's actually one of the first lessons in a class I teach, I just felt like creatively pointing out the typo!
