Former D'Iberville city manager out of prison

D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) - Michael Janus is out of prison and in a federal halfway house. According to the Bureau of Prisons website, the former D'Iberville city manager is now at a facility in Montgomery, Alabama.

Janus pleaded guilty to defrauding the city out of $180,000 in 2014. He was sentenced to 21 months for fraudulently obtaining a finder's fee for a company he co-owned with businessman Scott Walker. That fee was paid by the city for helping D'Iberville obtain a $3 million Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality grant.

Janus is due to be released from federal custody in January.
