Brian McLaughlin is a free man.
The former Flushing assemblyman, who served six years for racketeering and other charges, was released Friday from Schuylkill Federal Correctional Institution in Pennsylvania.
He will remain on supervised release, under supervision of the Department of Probation for three years. Probation will also be monitoring his employment as part of his release, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York.
McLaughlin, 62, was sentenced to a 10-year term, but in May a federal judge reduced the sentence as a reward for his cooperation with the government.
According to court papers, prosecutors said that his help, by wearing wires and taping conversations, assisted the government in putting away state Sen. Carl Kruger of Brooklyn, Assemblyman Anthony Seminerio of Ozone Park and David Rosen, CEO of the MediSys Health Network, which operates Flushing and Jamaica hospitals.
The judge also applauded McLaughlin for working as a counselor in prison for drug addicts and alcoholics.

He should have done the honorable thing and went the way of Semineiro.
Think Dizzy Lizzy was there to celebrate his release?
What a loser.
anyone wanna make a bet this cretin will run for office again?
I guess that the Queens Democrats will be throwing a giant welcome home party and Liz Crowley is getting her hair done. BTW does anyone know how much of the 3 million he stole get returned?
He paid his debt. I believe anyone can reform and change BUT he must be given a very short leash.
I hope he uses this experience to move forward and use his education to actually help other directly in need. I hope he stays away from politicians and becomes an advocate for some true cause, not a self serving one.
will they supervise who he talks to
Brine Laugh Long
He'll work for Parkside as a consultant of course.
Can't have an ex-con on the payroll, only future cons.
one wonders if DeBlasio will app oint him to be asst.to the staff member who,assists DeBasio's wife ?
he could name him the CRIME CZAR!!!!
Looking a bit seedy after playing hide the salami with his cell mate.
Maybe Brian has gone gay and dizzy Lizzy no longer perks up his pecker. You know...doin' the "jailhouse rock".
