Mob boss Salvatore "Sammy the Bull" Gravano has been released from prison early after serving 15 years behind bars, Radar Online reported Wednesday.

With five years left on his 20-year sentence, Gravano became a free man Monday but will spend the rest of his life on federal parole, a spokesperson for the Division of Offender Operations, Special Services Unit told Radar Online.

Gravano, now 72, was in prison after his 2002 conviction for buying and selling the drug ecstasy.

He became a household name in the early 1990s after turning on his mob family for a plea deal, essentially handing over mobster John Gotti and confessing to murdering 19 people.

Gotti was the head of the Gambino crime family in New York City. He died in 2002.
