DETROIT (AP) -- Former Michigan Supreme Court Justice Diane Hathaway has been released from a federal prison in West Virginia.

U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke says Hathaway became eligible for home confinement Thursday. It will run to June 26, followed by a period of probation.

Hathaway pleaded guilty to fraud for shifting properties and failing to disclose assets while trying to dump her Detroit-area home in a short sale. She quit the state Supreme Court in 2013.

Hathaway was sentenced to a year and a day in prison but got credit for good behavior. She served nine months at a prison for women in Alderson, West Virginia.
