Great White tour manager disappointed by indictment
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

(Warwick-AP) -- The attorney for Great White tour manager Dan Biechele said his client couldn�t have known of the dangerous conditions that led to a nightclub fire that claimed 100 lives.

Biechele pleaded innocent to 200 counts of involuntary manslaughter.

Attorney Tom Briody said his client is disappointed by the indictment but (quote) �we welcome the opportunity to contest the charges in a court.�

The lawyer said Biechele asked him to convey (quote) �his regret and condolences to those who lost friends and family in the fire.�

Briody addressed the media outside theKent County courthouse flanked by members of Biechele�s family, including his mother and father.

Prosecutors say Biechele lit the pyrotechnics that sparked the February blaze at The Station.
