Amy Senser released from prison

Posted: Updated:
STILLWATER, Minn. (KMSP) -

After spending fewer than 2 years in prison for a fatal hit-and-run crash, Amy Senser was released early Thursday morning -- but she won't be going home. Instead, she'll head to a halfway house as part of work release.

No matter where she goes or what she does, being on work release means Senser will still be watched at all times. For Senser, her first major step outside prison will involve finding and keeping a job.

The 47-year-old was convicted in August 2011 of hitting and killing Anousone Phanthavong with her car and fleeing the scene, but she could get a wide variety of jobs. Anything from telemarketing to warehouse work would do, but finding work as a felon isn't easy.

Once she does find a job, she must go to work, stay at work, and then return to the halfway house. There is no time allotted with family for dinner or outside activities.

Senser will be eligible to leave work release about 6 months from now.

At any given time, there are about 200 people in the work release program, and between 70 and 80 percent complete the program successfully.
