    BURLINGTON — A former Vermont State Police sergeant who pleaded guilty to padding his time sheets has been released from prison.

    Jim Deeghan served nine months of his two-year sentence after earning reductions for his work camp duty while in prison and because he was a nonviolent offender with no prior record.

    Deeghan, a 22-year police veteran, pleaded guilty in January. He recently began paying back the $200,000 he owes the state.
