KITTERY, Maine — A man who once managed a brothel out of a Kittery health club is out of prison after spending almost five years in federal custody.

Gary Reiner, 59, was convicted of promoting prostitution at the former Danish Health Club, which masqueraded as a massage business, and laundering $4 million in proceeds.

Reiner was once a soccer dad, lawyer and town councilor in Kittery.

The Portsmouth Herald said Reiner is getting out of prison 216 days early because of good time he amassed.

State and federal officials raided the brothel on June 4, 2004, and found 25 prostitutes working two shifts, seven days a week.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons said Reiner was released Thursday.
