A Marine pilot who was flying the plane that sheared a gondola cable and sent 20 people to their deaths in the Italian Alps has been freed from prison after five months, a friend said Monday. In a case that damaged U.S. relations with Italy, Capt. Richard Ashby was found not guilty of involuntary manslaughter and negligent homicide in the Feb. 3, 1998, tragedy but was convicted of conduct unbecoming an officer because he removed a personal videotape from the plane to hide evidence.
