Mr. Hatch, winner of the first season of the CBS reality show “Survivor,” was released Monday, a state prison official said.

Mr. Hatch, 50, served six weeks at a state minimum-security facility as a transition after spending most of his sentence in federal prison.

The Newport resident had spent more than three years in prison for not paying taxes on his $1 million “Survivor” winnings. He was released in 2009 and ordered to refile his 2000 and 2001 taxes and pay what he owed.

He went back to prison in March for violating the terms of his supervised release by failing to settle his tax bill. He had claimed he was “financially destitute.”

Mr. Hatch said Monday night he was “happy” to have been released but didn’t know where he would be staying. He maintained he’s innocent of failing to pay his taxes.

Man arrested in Kiss bassist’s hacking case

A Connecticut man affiliated with the Anonymous hacking group has been arrested on federal charges for an attack on a website belonging to Kiss bassist Gene Simmons.

Kevin Poe of Manchester, Conn., made his initial appearance Tuesday in federal court in Hartford, Conn., and was released on $10,000 bond. It wasn’t immediately known if he had retained an attorney.

Mr. Poe was indicted in Los Angeles on two counts: conspiracy and unauthorized impairment of a protected computer. If convicted of both, he faces up to 15 years in prison.

Authorities say Mr. Poe and others linked to Anonymous conducted a so-called “denial of service” attack in October 2010 against Mr. Simmons’ computer systems, sending tens of thousands of electronic requests designed to overload the server.

No other arrests have been made.
