Convicted paedophile Tom Humphries has been released from prison, 22 and a half months into his two and a half year sentence.

The former sports journalist was jailed in October 2017, after pleading guilty to grooming and sexually abusing a young girl at his Dublin home.

Tom Humphries first made contact with the girl in 2008.

The former sports journalist was 45 at the time, while she was just 14.

Their text conversations became explicit over time and after two years of regular messaging, in which thousands of texts were sent, Humphries arranged to collect the teenager outside her school one day.

The court heard he brought her back to his apartment in Santry, Dublin where they engaged in certain sexual acts.

In October 2017, Humphries was jailed for two and a half years in prison after pleading guilty to grooming and sexually abusing the girl.

He served his time in the Midlands prison in Portlaoise.

His sentence was reduced by 25% due to good behaviour, and the convicted paedophile was released this morning.
