Former Knox County Trustee Mike Lowe, who pleaded guilty this spring to stealing $200,000 from taxpayers, has been released from jail.

Knox County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to WBIR 10News that Lowe, who was sentenced in April to serve one year of a 10-year sentence, was released Oct. 16 from the Roger D. Wilson Detention Center on Maloneyville Road.

Lowe was on the a work program, allowed under the terms of sentencing by Judge Steve Sword, that let him perform labor, like cleaning the jail, in exchange for reduced hours.
Lowe’s problems, however, aren’t over.

He has a Nov. 19 hearing to determine how much and when he will pay back the $200,000 in restitution.
