Former Pine City Man Convicted Of Killing A Pine County Deputy Released From Prison
A former Pine City man who was convicted of killing a Pine County deputy back in 1991 has now been released from prison after serving a sentence for another crime.
Scott Lange, who was released on Tuesday, served the state required 20-year sentence for the death of Michael Morrow Senior. Lange beat the 53-year-old deputy to death with a flashlight after a traffic stop in 1991. After Lange served his sentence for that crime, he was arrested and convicted for assaulting his daughter. His release Tuesday is from that crime.
The Pine County Sheriff’s Department told KSTP that the release is generally upsetting, and they believe Lange should have gotten life in prison.
