Infamous mob snitch Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano —  is a free man!

On September 18, The notorious mobster was released five years early from an Arizona prison, after serving 15 years in prison.

In 2002, Gravano, 72, was sentenced to a 20-year term for running an Ecstasy ring after getting a deal of the century on 19 murders for ratting out John Gotti.

In the early 90’s, he was notorious for turning on his mafia family and helping the government bring down his former boss, Gotti, and 36 other mobsters, in exchange for a generous plea deal.

Gravano entered the witness protection program, but left in 1997 to release a tell-all about his life of crime.

Sammy’s daughter, Karen Gravano, had mentioned on an episode of Mob Wives that her father was eligible for a reduced sentence under an amendment to federal sentencing guidelines approved last year by the U.S. Sentencing Commission.
