Maine man who lived 27 years in the woods as a hermit out of jail after 7 months for burglary

A Maine man who lived 27 years in the woods as a hermit is out of jail.

A records officer at Kennebec County Jail says Friday that 47-year-old Christopher Knight was released earlier this month after served about seven months.

Knight, known as the North Pond Hermit, pleaded guilty to 13 counts of burglary and theft and was admitted into a special court program last month.

District Attorney Maeghan Maloney says she cannot release any details specific to Knight's participation in the program.

Knight's lawyer says he has not been in contact with him since his release.

Police have said Knight may have been responsible for up to 1,000 burglaries of food, clothing, camping and cooking gear from homes and camps while living in the woods before his April arrest.
