For­mer ac­tor Lillo Bran­cato Jr was re­leased from prison last Tues­day af­ter al­most 10 years be­hind bars for a bur­glary gone wrong that ended with his ac­com­plice killing a po­lice of­fi­cer. Bran­cato, 37, was re­leased about six months early for meet­ing ed­u­ca­tional and dis­ci­plinary re­quire­ments, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment by the Hud­son Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity in New York. As part of his early re­lease, Bran­cato will have pa­role con­di­tions, in­clud­ing a cur­few. Bran­cato was con­victed of at­tempted bur­glary and sen­tenced to 10 years in prison af­ter a botched bur­glary in 2005 in which an off-duty po­lice of­fi­cer was shot in the chest and later died in the hos­pi­tal. Bran­cato’s ac­com­plice, Steven Ar­mento, who was con­victed of the shoot­ing, is serv­ing a life sen­tence with­out the pos­si­bil­ity of pa­role.
