AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) – The North Pond Hermit is out of jail.   47 year old Christopher Knight, the man who lived in the woods for 27 years as a hermit was released earlier this month after having served about 7 months.  Knight pleaded guilty to 13 counts of burglary and theft and was admitted into a special court program last month. District Attorney Maeghan Maloney says she cannot release any details specific to Knight in the program. Knight’s lawyer says he has not been in contact with him since his release. Police have said Knight may have been responsible for up to 1,000 burglaries of food, clothing, camping and cooking gear from homes and camps while living in the woods before his April arrest.
