TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau was freed from a Cook County jail.

Trudeau had been locked-up at the Metropolitan Correctional Center twice in the past month and a half.

The Federal Trade Commission wants the 50-year-old to pay a $37 million fine for misrepresenting the contents of his book, “The Weight Loss Cure ‘They’ Don’t Want You to Know About.”   They based the fine on the number of books sold.

Federal officials are trying to force him to reveal the whereabouts of millions of dollars they think he has hidden in offshore accounts. Trudeau insists the money’s gone, and today, said so under oath.

The judge warned him he’ll face perjury charges if that turns out not to be true.

A jury trial, on criminal contempt charges, is scheduled to go before a different judge next week.
