(Salt Lake City-AP) -- A former Fourth District judge who pleaded guilty to drug possession has been released from jail and now is serving his probation term.

Ray Harding, junior, was sentenced to 120 days in jail on April 28th after he pleaded guilty to two class A misdemeanor counts of drug possession.

Officials at the Salt Lake County Jail say Harding spent 73 days there. He was released on July tenth.

His early release was due to the amount of "good time" credited to him, as well as credit for two days spent in jail after his arrest in July 2002.

Harding was also sentenced to 24-months probation, as well as continued counseling, attendance at 12-step meetings, and 500 hours of community service.
