Great White Blaze Club Owners Sentenced
The owners of The Station nightclub in Rhode Island, where 100 people were killed in a blaze sparked by pyrotechnics at a GREAT WHITE gig in 2003, have pleaded no contest to involuntary manslaughter. But the victims' families have been left outraged by a decision to only put one of the brothers partly responsible for the fire accident behind bars. In court yesterday (20SEP06), MICHAEL and JEFFREY DERDERIAN were handed their sentences for their part in the tragic blaze. Michael will serve four years in a minimum security prison, while his sibling has been handed a suspended 10-year sentence.
