Roy Williams Leaves Prison

Associated Press

Former Teamsters President Roy Williams was released from prison early today after serving less than 34 months of a 10-year sentence given him for conspiring to bribe a U.S. senator.

Government officials said they would expect Williams to continue his involvement with the government's war on organized crime as a condition of his release. Officials at the U.S. Medical Center for Federal Prisoners said Williams, 73, left accompanied by an attorney and a member of his family. Williams' attorneys have said he would go to his farm in Leeton, in west-central Missouri, after his release.
