Winner’s transfer came on June 2 and was not part of any commutation or special treatment but a scheduled shift due to good behavior, said her attorney, Alison Grinter Allen.
While she finishes her sentence, she is likely to have the option of home confinement.
“She is in the custody of the halfway house, and the halfway house can use home confinement as part of it, but it’s all at the discretion of the halfway house,” her attorney said. “She has begun the reentry process.”

During his OAN interview, Stovall appeared to be wearing his Army uniform. In his Gun Freedom Radio interview, Stovall did not wear his uniform but referred to President Joe Biden as "this sleepy guy in office" and said he didn't believe Biden was president.
His comments and his decision to wear his uniform on OAN and use photos of himself in uniform in a political campaign ad have prompted an Army investigation, Task & Purpose reported.
(CNN)Former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump have weighed in on Major League Baseball's decision to move its All-Star Game out of Atlanta in response to Georgia's new sweeping election law that imposes significant new obstacles to voting.
Obama on Saturday congratulated the league "for taking a stand on behalf of voting rights for all citizens," following MLB's Friday announcement. The Democrat's tweeted support of the move struck a starkly different tone from his Republican successor's statement late Friday that called for a boycott of baseball and all of the "woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections."
Opponents of the new election law say the legislation, and similar measures being considered in other states, amount to voter suppression efforts that will reduce minority voting. Republicans cast the measure, dubbed The Election Integrity Act of 2021, as necessary to boost confidence in elections after the 2020 election saw Trump make repeated, unsubstantiated claims of fraud.
The legislation, signed into law last month by Georgia GOP Gov. Brian Kemp, imposes voter identification requirements for absentee ballots, allows state officials to take over local elections boards, limits the use of ballot drop boxes and makes it a crime to give or offer voters food and drink as they wait in line to vote.
Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) on Tuesday celebrated several grants awarded to his district as part of a $1.9 trillion relief bill passed by Congress earlier this month that he, along with all other Republicans in Congress, voted against.
“Happy to announce that NC-11 was awarded grants from the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services,” Cawthorn tweeted, listing four seperate grants to health centers and clinics totaling more than $19 million.
Those funds, however, are part of the covid relief package, which passed both chambers of Congress with only Democratic votes, and which Cawthorn labeled “nothing more than a Pelosi payoff” in February.
Cawthorn was harshly criticized on Twitter by supporters of the bill, including his colleague Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), who tweeted, “Pleased to see you support government spending in NC-11,” noting he voted against the bill.
Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested that Lara Trump could be the nominee to run for Sen. Richard Burr's seat.
Burr of North Carolina will not run for re-election in 2022.
Burr has faced backlash from his party for voting to convict Trump in the impeachment trial.
First-term Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-N.C.) is throwing his support behind former North Carolina Rep. Mark Walker in the state’s Senate Republican primary in what is expected to be one of the most closely watched races in the 2022 midterms.All up in here
Cawthorn, who was among the GOP lawmakers who helped advance challenges to the 2020 presidential election over unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud, wrote in a statement that Walker “has been an ardent supporter of President Trump, a conservative stalwart” and that the former congressman will work “to stop the radical socialist agenda the democrats want to implement.”
“His commitment to our community, faith and values is unparalleled,” Cawthorn added. “It is more important than ever we choose a candidate with grit, determination and passion, and that candidate is Mark Walker.”
