LEAVENWORTH, Kansas - Former Mandeville Mayor Eddie Price is expected to be released from federal prison Tuesday.

Price was serving time in Leavenworth, Kansas after pleading guilty to tax evasion and mail fraud charges.

Now, sources say Price will leave the prison for a halfway house in the New Orleans area.

He's expected to spend two to four months in the transitional housing to serve out the rest of his prison sentence.

Price originally received a 64-month sentence in June 2010, but that was later shortened to 40 months. He became eligible to serve the last months of his term in the halfway house after striking a deal in 2011 in a separate perjury case.
