(AP) — A former government contractor who was sentenced to federal prison time in the longest sentence imposed for leaks to the news media has been released to home confinement. That’s according to a person familiar with the matter who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday.

The person says 29-year-old Reality Winner has been moved to home confinement and remains in the custody of the federal Bureau of Prisons. She pleaded guilty in 2018 of a single count of transmitting national security information.

Prosecutors said at the time that her sentence was the longest ever imposed for leaking government information to the news media.
