UPDATE: NH Farmer Wins Early Release after Gun Sentence

Last November, Breitbart.TV alerted you to the story of New Hampshire resident Ward Bird who was sentenced to an incredibly stiff three to six years in prison after the state Supreme Court upheld a conviction for brandishing a weapon. The Drudge Report picked up on the story and Bird became a cause celeb in Tea Party, libertarian, and gun-rights circles. The Breitbart.TV community was universally livid, and the video quickly became one of our highest trafficked posts of the month.

We’re pleased to report that Mr. Bird was released today after serving merely two months of his sentence. While ideally the Moultonborough resident would have been granted a rare full pardon, he will have the opportunity to apply to the court to have the conviction annulled.
