CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The man who as a teen killed the husband of his lover and high school instructor, Pamela Smart, says his actions will always haunt him.
A New Hampshire parole board took only a few minutes Thursday to grant parole to William "Billy" Flynn, who was 16 in 1990 when he killed Gregg Smart. Prosecutors say Pamela Smart seduced him and manipulated him into committing the crime.
Flynn spoke by telephone from the Maine prison where he has been held. He says he will always feel terrible about the killing and "parole will not change that."
Flynn says finding a job will be his biggest challenge because employers search his name on the Internet and the first thing they learn about him "is the worst thing I've ever done."
