Judge releases jailed Canseco for five days

Associated Press

MIAMI -- Former baseball star Jose Canseco was released from jail Wednesday after making a special request to be freed for a five-day visit with his 6-year-old daughter.

Canseco, the American League MVP in 1988, has been in jail since last month after allegedly violating probation a second time for a nightclub scuffle. Canseco was ordered held until a court hearing July 21 on whether he violated his probation by testing positive for steroids.

Canseco's daughter is visiting from California, where his ex-wife lives.

Canseco, who retired from baseball last year, was charged with his twin brother, Ozzie, for the 2001 brawl in Miami Beach. He was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty last year.

Jose Canseco already violated his probation by leaving Florida for several weeks and failing to start community service and anger management classes. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and two years of house arrest. He was warned that further violations could result in a 15-year prison sentence.
