Pollard was released at about 5 a.m.
His legal fight isn’t over. Shortly after his release, Pollard’s attorneys began a court challenge to terms of his parole that they called “onerous and oppressive.”
The White House has said that it has no intention of altering the conditions of Pollard’s parole.
President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser reiterated that stance on Friday.
A video taken by a WCBS journalist showed Pollard walking into the federal courthouse in Manhattan with his wife, Esther, this morning. WATCH:
