On Friday, Federal Bureau of Prisons spokesman Chris Burke told the Huffington Post Follieri was released from a prison in Loretto, 80 miles east of Pittsburgh, Pa,. and transferred to immigration authorities.
The Italian entrepreneur, who was still dating the Devil Wears Prada star at the time of his arrest, was jailed in 2008 after stealing more than $3.6 million from investors. During his trial, Hathaway broke things off with Follieri after her private journals were seized by the FBI for investigation. No charges were ever made against the actress.
Hathaway, 29, is currently engaged to The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning actor Adam Shulman. The couple has been dating for three years.
