Lewis Run - Wesley Snipes has been released from a federal prison after serving time on tax charges.
Snipes was convicted in 2008. He was released on Tuesday and placed under home confinement. A Bureau of Corrections spokesperson said on Friday he'll be overseen by the New York Community Corrections Office until 19 July.
Snipes entered prison in December 2010 to begin a three-year sentence for failure to file income tax returns.
Snipes belonged to a group that challenged the government's right to collect taxes. US prosecutors say he failed to file returns for at least a decade and owed millions of dollars in back taxes.
The 50-year-old actor has appeared in dozens of films, including the blockbuster Blade trilogy.
