Sheila Farrington Released Early From Federal Prison

In 2010, Farrington was sentenced to nine years for bribery, extortion, and money laundering in a case that was the biggest public corruption case in Dallas history. Her husband, former mayor pro tem Don Hill, received an 18-year sentence. Farrington wasn't scheduled to get out until February 2018, but this morning she left the Fort Worth facility where she'd been serving her sentence, on "compassionate release." She has multiple sclerosis, and is moving in with her sister in Illinois. As for her husband, he's sick, too: last summer, Hill was moved to a prison facility in North Carolina, where his stage-4 prostate cancer could be better attended to.
