ALBANY — Former New York state comptroller Alan Hevesi is set to be released from prison after serving 20 months for his leading role in an influence-peddling scandal at the state’s massive pension fund.
State corrections officials say Hevesi is expected to leave the Mid-State Correctional Facility in Oneida County Wednesday morning. He was granted parole in November.
As comptroller, Hevesi was sole trustee of the fund now valued at nearly $150 billion.
Hevesi was sentenced to from one to four years in prison after pleading guilty in 2010 to official misconduct.
