Black Friday defendant Chad Elie announced his return to the ranks of the free via Twitter today:

Elie began his five-month sentence in late January and served the full term.

That’s in contrast to fellow Black Friday defendant Brent Beckley, who reportedly was released several months ahead of schedule.

Elie stirred up quite a conversation prior to the start of his sentence when he appeared on Twitter and provided something of a window into his first-hand experience with Black Friday.

That culminated in an extended interview over at DiamondFlushPoker.

Elie remains involved in a lawsuit against his former legal representation.
