BALTIMORE (AP) The wife of disgraced Washington lobbyist Jack Abramoff says he is at a halfway house in Baltimore.

Pam Abramoff declined to name the facility during a brief telephone conversation Thursday with The Associated Press.

The 51-year-old former power broker was released Tuesday from the minimum-security federal prison camp in western Maryland after serving about 3.5 years of a six-year sentence for fraud, corruption and conspiracy.

The federal Bureau of Prisons says Abramoff is scheduled to become a free man on Dec. 4.
