A 20-year-old Pennsylvania man convicted of harassing Sarah Palin's Alaska attorneys has been released pending his sentencing scheduled for June 8.
Shawn Christy of McAdoo, Pa., has been in custody since he and his father were arrested in August, most recently at a federal Bureau of Prisons medical facility outside Alaska.
A federal prosecutor says Christy was released and sent back to Pennsylvania this month after the bureau said in a report he was not a danger to the public.
Christy and his father, 48-year-old Craig Christy, pleaded guilty in January to making harassing phone calls to Palin's attorneys. Palin attorney John Tiemessen testified in January that the men's calls threatened both Palin and attorneys.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Retta-Rae Randall says Craig Christy remains at a Bureau of Prisons medical facility, where he received a psychiatric evaluation. It was unknown if the father and son were held at the same facility.
