Former `Sopranos' actor gets parole
State corrections officials say Lillo Brancato Jr. was freed from prison at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
A jury found Brancato guilty on the attempted burglary charge in 2008 but acquitted him of murder in the death of Officer Daniel Enchautegui (en-chow-TAY'-gee). He was sentenced to 10 years. His co-defendant was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
Brancato made his debut in 1993 in "A Bronx Tale" opposite Robert De Niro. He played a doomed aspiring mobster in HBO's "The Sopranos."
There was no immediate response to a message left Tuesday with his attorney seeking comment.2013-12-31 15:33:25 GMT
