Lindh, photographed as a wild-eyed, bearded 20-year-old at his capture, will leave a federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana on probation after serving 17 years of a 20-year sentence, according to a prison official.

Now, after 17 years of imprisonment, he will spend the remaining three years under the officials' special supervision at his house, monitoring his internet usages which he can only use English language on the internet.

He could also obtain another passport and leave America.
