Judge reduces Abramoff sentence for bank fraud
A federal judge in Florida reduced convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff's bank fraud sentence.

Abramoff was originally sentenced to 70 months but Judge Paul Huck cut it to 45 months. That puts it in line with the 48 months he received for defrauding his tribal clients.

Abramoff has already been in prison for almost two years. He is due to be released in September 2012 but could get out earlier for good behavior.
