YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

After serving all but one year and two months of a four year prison sentence, Michael Clarett Jr., has been granted an early release from prison.

Mahoning County Common Pleas Judge R. Scott Krichbaum on Monday granted judicial release to Clarett, who is the brother of former football standout Maurice Clarett.

In 2011, Judge Krichbaum sentenced Clarett following his conviction on multiple drug counts including trafficking in heroin.

On Monday, Judge Krichbaum noted that Clarett has been in prison without any reported incidents.  The judge ordered Clarett to undergo a program at a halfway  house for a period of four to six months.

Following completion of that program without any infractions, Clarett will be placed on probation for two years.
