Anthony Levandowski, 40, was sentenced in August to 18 months in prison after pleading guilty in March. He was not in custody but a judge had said he could enter custody once the COVID-19 pandemic subsided.

The White House said Levandowski was “an American entrepreneur who led Google’s efforts to create self-driving technology.”

The statement added he had “paid a significant price for his actions and plans to devote his talents to advance the public good.” Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Inc’s Google did not immediately comment.

Levandowski transferred more than 14,000 Google files, including development schedules and product designs, to his personal laptop before he left, and while negotiating a deal with Uber, where he briefly led its self-driving car unit.
