An Eastport man was released by court order on Monday evening after being resentenced by Circuit Judge Ben W. Hooper II under the terms of a 2011 state supreme court opinion.

David Lynn Sisk, 32, has been in custody since January 3, 2007, in connection with the 2006 break-in of the residence of Manit and Marina Subhakul at 504 Seventh Street sometime between March 27 and April 4, 2006. He was originally sentenced to 27 years in prison, a term which was reversed on appeal.

Sisk's case was sent back to Judge Hooper by the Tennessee Supreme Court, which instructed the judge to resentence the defendant.
