Former state Insurance Commissioner Carroll Fisher is released from jail after posting a $50,000 appeal bond.

Oklahoma County Jail officials confirm Fisher was released at 10:48 PM Tuesday.

The 66-year-old Fisher was in jail for nearly two weeks after his conviction February 8th in a campaign-corruption case.

Fisher was sentenced Tuesday to three years in prison and fined $20,000 for embezzlement and perjury.

A judge allowed him to be home in Tulsa during the appeal.

Fisher's next trial is set for September 11th.
