A federal judge today lessened former state Sen. Joe Coniglio’s sentence, which means Coniglio, found guilty in 2009 of extortion and mail fraud,  could be out before May.

U.S. District Judge Dennis M. Cavanaugh today chopped Coniglio’s sentence from 30 to 20 months in response to an appeals court backing down the mail fraud charge.

The former senator could also receive three months off for good behavior.
