The man convicted of poisoning the Toomer's Corner oak trees will be released from jail Monday morning.

Harvey Updyke will leave the Lee County Detention Center following 76 days of incarceration. His attorney is supposed to be present at the time of release and might make a statement to media. Updyke is prevented from talking with the media under his release agreement and will have a 7 PM curfew.

Under the plea agreement, Updyke was given a three-year split sentence, which included six months of jail time. He had credit for time already served.

Once he is released from jail Updyke will be on probation for five years. He will also be banned from the Auburn University campus and from attending any collegiate sporting event.

Updyke poisoned the famous Auburn University oak trees after the 2010 Iron Bowl.
