Disgraced political powerhouse Manny Aragon was released from federal prison in Colorado on Thursday.

A person at Aragon's attorney's office confirmed today was his release date, but could not provide any further details about where he was headed.

In 2008, the former leader of the New Mexico Senate was convicted of conspiracy in a construction scheme to defraud the state of more than $4 million.

He was sentenced to 5 and a half years in prison for his role.
