Roslyn school embezzler gets out early

The former Roslyn school superintendent who was convicted of taking part in an $11 million embezzlement scheme is getting out of prison early.

Frank Tassone is set to leave state prison Tuesday, eight months and four days ahead of schedule due to good behavior.

That means Tassone will have served only three of his four-to-12-year prison sentence he received in 2006.

Tassone has repaid the $2 million he stole from the district.
