OC dentist convicted in 3 deaths may be set free

COSTA MESA, Calif.

A parole board granted the release of Tony Protopappas, who accidentally gave those patients lethal doses of anesthesia in the early 80s.

Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger overturned a previous parole decision, but this new ruling overturns that decision.

Unless the Attorney General appeals, Protopoppas should be a free man within the next two weeks.
