Inconceivable!    

He did his time & I respect that - as long as he doesn't come out blaming everyone but himself. He served his time.

Why is he out? I thought the plan was to jail martha and wesley for as long as possible , but to let murders, robbers and rapists walk away from the system with slaps on the hand or nothing at all ( oj, casey anthony, the list could go ON for a long time)

Did he do his entire sentence or is this some kind of reduction of time? Plus, will he be paying any $$ back to Uncle Sam?

Does this mean his tax bill is 'forgiven'? I find it odd he was released to home confinement. I thought Federal inmates were released to halfway houses on parole?
