Forbes Smiley Reportedly Released

There are reports that Forbes Smiley, who was sentenced to 3½ years in prison in September 2006 after admitting having stolen nearly 100 maps from various libraries, was released from prison on Friday: Geolounge, Philobiblos.

Smiley, you may recall, was apprehended in July 2005 trying to take maps from Yale’s Beinecke Library. See my posts about map thefts for past coverage of the Smiley affair.
