Man convicted for Pioneer Hotel fire to be released

April 01, 2013

A Tucson man who has spent 42 years in prison for the Pioneer Hotel fire that killed 28 people is expected to be released tomorrow as part of an agreement with prosecutors.

Louis Taylor was convicted as a teen but has maintained his innocence. The Arizona Daily Star says that Taylor is scheduled to plead no contest in an agreement that sets aside his original conviction and gives him credit for time already served.
