Ex Montreal North mayor leaves jail after a month following guilty plea to sex crime involving teen

A former mayor of Montreal North was sentenced to 6 months in jail last month.

Now, he's out. 

Gilles Deguire, a former police officer, has been released after serving only one sixth of his sentence. 

He pleaded guilty to sexually touching a minor.  

A charge of sexual assault against Deguire, who's in his mid 60's, was stayed when he pleaded guilty last December.

Often times first-time offenders are only required to serve a  sixth of their sentences.

The charges cover a two-year period when the victim was between 13 and 15-years old.
