Former Judge Wes Teel out of prison

Former Coast Chancery Judge Wes Teel has been released from federal prison this week and returned home to his family on the Coast, after the reduction of his sentence in a judicial bribery case.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons database shows Teel was released Tuesday. A close family friend of the Teels said he was released from a Lexington, Ky., facility and took a long bus ride home.
