Daniel Biechele, former tour manager for Great White, walked out of the Adult Correctional Institutions in Cranston today at noon.
CRANSTON -- The man who lit the pyrotechnic display that sparked the 2003 Station nightclub fire has been released from prison.
Daniel Biechele walked out of the Adult Correctional Institutions in Cranston today at noon, and headed directly to the car of his lawyer, Thomas Briody.
Biechele did not reply to a group of television, newspaper and radio reporters from around New England who asked how he was doing and where he was going.
Briody later released this statement:
"Today marks the completion of one part of Mr. Biechele’s sentence. Out of respect for the victims of the fire he does not wish to make any comment. He was a private citizen before this tragedy and he wishes to remain so. There will be no further comment."
Biechele was sentenced in 2006 to 4 years after being convicted of 100 counts of involuntary manslaughter. He will serve the rest of his sentence on parole.
