YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Lisa Antonini, former Mahoning County Treasurer and Democratic Party chairwoman, is out of federal prison and is now in a halfway house in Youngstown.

David Stillwagon, Director of the Community Corrections Association tells 21 News that Antonini, 44, arrived at the Market Street facility on Wednesday.

Since January, Antonini had been in the minimum security federal prison in Alderson, West Virginia, where she had been sent to serve a five month sentence.

Antonini was sentenced on Nov. 13 after pleading guilty to one count of honest services mail fraud for failing to report a $3,000 cash gift on a disclosure form mailed to the Ohio Ethics Commission back in 2008.

According to the Bureau of Prisons, Antonini's sentence will be completed on June 5.  However she must spend another five months under electronic monitoring.

Stillwagon tells 21 News that Antonini will undergo a battery of assessment tests for the next seven days, after which she will be eligible to search for a job.

Stillwagon says she will also have counseling available to assist her reintegration into society.
