Former Colombo family underboss John (Sonny) Franzese has been released from prison at the ripe old age of 100.  It was his first full day of freedom in eight years.

“I’m very delighted that he’s home,” said his daughter Loraine Scorsone.

Her brother Michael, who accompanied their dad on the ride down from the Federal Medical Center in Devens, Mass., agreed the family patriarch’s presence was a welcome addition.

“Dad enjoyed a nice, quiet and well-earned night at home,” Michael said Saturday via email. “The day was a bit overwhelming for him, I’m sure.

“He has four remaining children, several grandchildren and a bunch of great-grandkids who want to know him, love him and give him some happiness in his remaining years. He deserves it.”

A native of Naples, Italy, Franzese had been serving time for shaking down strip clubs. 

He had previously been named in a 43-count gambling indictment.  Franzese had been paroled at least six times since serving time for that activity.
