Friday, February 8, 2013 - 2:00pm

Former Louisiana Governor Edwin Edwards is a free man.

A federal judge has agreed to end his supervised release. He'd been sentenced to three years, and has only served 18 months.

Edwards was convicted in a riverboat licensing scheme and served eight years in federal prison.

Edwards and his wife Trina are expecting their first child together, and gearing up for a reality show.
