A man once accused of plotting to kidnap retired talk show host David Letterman’s son and nanny has been released from a Montana prison for a second time after serving additional years for violating parole.

The Great Falls Tribune reported Saturday that Kelly Allen Frank was released in mid-November and is under the supervision of parole officials.

Frank was a painter on Letterman’s Montana ranch when he was arrested in 2005 on charges of plotting an abduction.

In a deal with prosecutors, he pleaded guilty to overcharging Letterman for his work and other violations and was sentenced to 10 years. Prosecutors dropped kidnapping-related charges.

Frank escaped in 2007 but was recaptured and sentenced to another 10 years.

He was released in 2014 but was re-arrested in 2015 for the parole violation.
