(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A North Iowa man convicted of trying to hire a hitman to kill a teenage girl is out of prison after serving a fraction of his sentence.

Alan Cannon, of Clear Lake, plead guilty and was sentenced in February of last year.

Police say Cannon wanted to kill a 16-year-old girl after the teen accused him of sexually assaulting her.

Cannon's sentence was for five years, but court records show he was paroled Tuesday after serving only 10 months.
