"Jersey Shore" star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino is a happy man because he has finally been released from prison.
Sitch was released Thursday morning around 8:30 AM. His wife greeted him at the gates and released a statement after he was breathing free air.
"We are elated to finally close this chapter of our life. Thank you to our family, friends and fans for the continuous love and support during this time, it brought us so much peace and comfort." They go on ... "We look forward to continuing our life as husband and wife and working on baby situations!"
In January of this year, he surrendered himself to a New York federal prison to serve a eight-month sentence for tax evasion.
Sorrentino was also sentenced to two years of supervised release and must complete 500 hours of community service.
