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.
