Hatch survives federal sentence

October 17, 2009|Associated Press

"Survivor" winner Richard Hatch was released from a Massachusetts jail Friday after completing a federal sentence for evading taxes on the $1 million he won during the CBS reality show's first season.

Hatch was freed shortly before 6 a.m. from Barnstable County jail in Bourne, Mass., sheriff spokesman Roy Lyons said. He was driven home to Newport, R.I., by sheriff's deputies and arrived there around 7:30 a.m., Lyons said.

Hatch is living with his sister, who declined to comment Friday and instructed a reporter to leave the property.

Hatch, 48, now faces three years of supervised release. He won't be able to leave Rhode Island without permission and must check in with his probation officer regularly, said Barry Weiner, chief U.S. probation officer for Rhode Island. Hatch doesn't have a job yet, but he will have to find one, Weiner said

He must also complete a mental health program.
