YONKERS, NY — February 26, 2013 — Everyone had an opinion. Everyone “knew” more than they
could have known. Such are the delusions of Yonkersites who need to be in the
mix. To be part of the “inside” crowd of when Nick Spano would be released from
prison was a gambler’s dream come true. Would he come out on May 19th,
or would it be at the end of March or mid March? Yonkersites’ interests were
piqued. Mr Spano was given notice yesterday that he would be released today,
Tuesday, February 26, 2013. He was greeted by family, who escorted him to a
“residential re-entry facility in The Bronx. A fact confirmed to the Yonkers Tribune by youngest brother and
Acting Yonkers City Clerk Vincent Spano.
Nick Spano is quite an unusual man. He exited the prison
some 40 pounds leaner. He wasn’t America’s Biggest Loser. Quite the contrary,
his demeanor was such that Mr Spano learned to do the time rather than for the
time to do him. An exemplary mindset of survivalist instincts to which he
alluded before the federal courthouse in White Plains, New York, so many months ago upon commenting over the
sentence he would come to serve.
Nick Spano has found employment at a real estate agency as a
manager of a store, not as a real estate broker. He needs time to regain his
The residential re-entry facility has standards that must be
met. Nick Spano will need to be in the facility by 7 pm every evening and may
depart for work after 7 am. He cannot drive his own vehicle to and from work;
he cannot own or use a cell phone. There are many more restrictions that will
continue to govern Mr Nick Spano’s life and lifestyle.
He has weathered the crisis with great integrity. His family
must be credited for supporting him with love and concern and pride for their
son, husband, father, and brother.
Welcome home Nick Spano. Welcome Home!
