Former Governor Edwin Edwards spent his Easter out of prison and with his family. 

According to The Advocate Edwards was on a three-day furlough from the federal prison at Oakdale.

Edwards was reportedly staying at a campground in Port Allen. 

The 82-year-old former governor is serving a 10-year prison term for a racketeering conviction. 

He's projected to be released July of next year. 

According to prison officials, it's not uncommon for prisoners to be released on furlough for a few days at a time to reintroduce them to society.
