Irondequoit, N.Y. -- Former Irondequoit Police Officer Chad Rahn has been released from prison, according to Department of Corrections records.
Rahn was convicted of using a police computer to identify a 911 tipster. He gave the tipster's name to two men, who then beat up and robbed the police informant.
Rahn was granted parole in April and was released on Thursday. He wasn't expected to get out until August.
Rahn had been in prison since April 2011. He maintains his innocence and says he was conducting an independent investigation of the suspects.
