Martha Stewart Freed From Prison

Martha Stewart is freed from prison, returns to New York estate

Martha Stewart is back at her 153-acre New York estate after serving five months in a West Virginia prison for lying about a stock sale. Her plane landed at Westchester County Airport about two hours after she left prison in Alderson, West Virginia. She was whisked away by a motorcade of two cars bound for her estate.

She has to report to a probation officer and remain under house arrest for the next five months. But she can leave for work 48 hours a week. Stewart's new focus will be to rebuild her homemaking empire. A statement on her Web site calls her jail experience "life altering and life affirming."

About a-half mile from the prison, a cardboard sign said, "Goodbye Martha. From fans and friends in Alderson, West Virginia."
