A reality TV twist on federal supervised release

Thanks to How Appealing, I saw this local article headlined "Hatch asks if he can serve end of sentence in Argentina."  Though political junkies might first think of Senator Hatch, TV junkies know that this article is about the first winner of Survivor, Richard Hatch.  Here are some of the amusing particulars:

If Survivor star Richard Hatch can’t be a free man, he wants to be free to serve his time on supervised release in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and travel wherever he pleases to make guest appearances on the popular CBS reality show.

Hatch filed a motion in U.S. District Court this week asking for travel freedom and to live in Argentina during his term under supervision because he is married to an Argentine national whose family is unable to travel to the United States.

He has asked the court to let him visit Argentina and pursue income opportunities abroad, should it deny his request to live in Argentina. He repeats his contention that he was wrongfully convicted of tax evasion.
