Actor Kiefer Sutherland has been released from jail after serving all of his 48-day sentence.

According to People magazine, a jail spokesperson confirmed that the 41-year-old star left prison at about 12.05am this morning.

The actor spent Christmas Day, New Year's Day and his birthday behind bars. He was serving a sentence imposed for driving while under the influence and violating the terms of his probation.

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