Nearly 25 years after PAMELA SMART’s former teen lover shot her husband dead at her imploring has been granted parole.
Smart was a teacher in a self-awareness program at Winnicunnet High School in Hampton when she seduced William “Billy” Flynn, then a 15-year old volunteer.
After being sexually manipulated by his much older lover, Smart, Flynn, then 16, and Patrick Randall, 17, forced Gregory Smart, a insurance company sales rep, to his knees in the foyer, while another friend waited outside in a getaway car.
With a knife to the Smart’s throat, Flynn shot him in the head May 1, 1990.
Now, Flynn was granted parole by a three-person panel in Concord, New Hampshire on his 41st birthday.
'It's your birthday.
'We're granting you the privilege of parole,”' board chairwoman Donna Sytek said.
Still incarcerated in a Maine prison Flynn called into the hearing via telephone.
He said, “I will always feel terrible about what happened 25 years ago. Parole will not change that.
Flynn will not be freed before his parole eligibility date of June 4.
Meanwhile, Pamela Smart, remains behind bars serving a life sentence at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in Westchester, N.Y.
A spokeswoman for Smart told AP that Smart took no position on Flynn's parole bid. She hopes she can have the same chance at eventual freedom.
The bombshell case was made into several films and TV movies including “To Die For” starring Nicole Kidman as a fictionalized version of Pamela Smart.
