24 Star Set To 'Leave Jail' Soon

by | 18 January 2008

Actor Kiefer Sutherland will be released from jail this Monday after serving a drink-driving sentence, according to reports.

The 24 star was sentenced to 48 days in jail in December over a second driving under the influence conviction and for violating the terms of his probation agreement.

A spokesperson for the jail, John Balian, told People magazine that the star had not asked for special treatment during his jail-term.

"Throughout his stay, he never griped, never complained. He never wanted preferential treatment from the get go, and we respect him for that," he said.

Speaking to the magazine, he added that Sutherland did not include his family or friends on his visitor request list and that he only met with his lawyer and doctor during his sentence.

During his time, Sutherland did laundry duty and other cleaning work at the prison. Sutherland spent his birthday, Christmas and the New Year in prison. Fan mail for the imprisoned actor came in regularly, Mr Balian added.
