SEABROOK - Vance Lattime, the driver in the Pamela Smart murder case, was released from prison Monday on parole.

Family members picked him up at the State Prison in Concord around 1 p.m., according to Jeffrey Lyons, a spokesman for the Department of Corrections.

Lattime, of Seabrook, was 17 in 1990 when he supplied the car and the murder weapon to kill Gregory Smart. He served 15 years of an 18-year-to-life sentence. Earlier, he won a sentence reduction, and a month ago, the state Parole Board granted parole.

Lattime could not be reached for comment. A family member reached on Tuesday declined to comment.
