100 Year Old Mobster Sees Freedom

A 100-year-old Long Island mobster is  a free man after spending more than a third of his life behind bars. 

Sonny Franzese of Roslyn left a prison  medical center in Massachusetts  in a wheelchair yesterday, according to "Newsday."  

He was the oldest  inmate in the federal system.  Law enforcement thinks Franzese either  killed or ordered the murders of 50 people as the head of the Colombo  family's Long Island rackets in the 1960s.  Franzese was convicted in a  bank robbery conspiracy.  

He got paroled six times, but kept landing  back behind bars.  

The last time was when he was 93.
