TurnTo10 has issued the following report:
A judge sentenced former GREAT WHITE tour manager Dan Biechele to four years in prison Wednesday (May 10) for lighting the pyrotechnics display that sparked The Station nightclub fire, which killed 100 people.
A tearful Biechele apologized to the families who lost loved ones before the sentence was handed down.
"I will never forgive myself for what happened that night," Biechele said.
A prosecutor asked a judge to sentence the former GREAT WHITE tour manager to 10 years in prison Wednesday
"The devastation wrought by the conduct of the defendant is unparalleled in our state's history," prosecutor Randall White said, occasionally choking up as he described what he called the incalculable impact on those who survived and relatives of those who died.
"The suffering is endless, and the extent and depth of the pain is bottomless," White added.
The courtroom was dotted with relatives of those who died and survived, many of them wearing buttons with photos of their loved ones. More than a dozen counselors were on hand to assist family members, and Superior Court Judge Francis Darigan Jr. opened the hearing by asking them to maintain decorum.
