The Associated Press has issued the following report:

Former GREAT WHITE tour manager who was sentenced to prison for igniting a deadly nightclub fire should be allowed to work for a nonprofit agency while serving his time, a judge ruled Tuesday.

Daniel Biechele pleaded guilty to 100 counts of involuntary manslaughter in the 2003 fire at The Station nightclub in West Warwick and was sentenced earlier this month to four years in a minimum security prison.

His lawyers said Tuesday that he had been offered a job in the finance department of The Arc of Northern Rhode Island, a nonprofit agency that provides services to people with disabilities.

Biechele had no prior criminal record, and Superior Court Judge Francis J. Darigan Jr. ruled Tuesday that he should be eligible for a work-release program.

Prisoners in the work-release system generally work during the day and return to a minimum-security prison at night. Biechele's position would still require approval from the state Department of Corrections.
