From the Daily News:
Disgraced former state Controller Alan Hevesi will be out of prison for the holidays, the Daily News has learned.
A state Parole Board panel approved Hevesi’s second attempt at parole after a Wednesday hearing, a source familiar with the situation said.
Now known as inmate 11-R-1334, the 72-year-old Hevesi will be back home by Dec. 19.
The former pol was denied his first shot at parole last December by a 2-to-1 vote of a Parole Board panel. In keeping him locked up, the majority cited his “shallow” attempt at accepting blame.
Andrew Hevesi said his father this time accepted full responsibility during the hearing.
Hevesi said his father also took responsibility “for several life-long patterns that have hurt his family and friends that are unrelated to what happened in the controller’s office."
His crony, Hank Morris, was denied parole.
