Personal Quote:

There was no way to stop what was going to happen. We just reached the point where all that the three of us really wanted to do was hold up a bank. And besides, standing there with a gun, cleaning out a teller's cage--that's about as fuckin' honest as you can get, man!

Trivia:

On Aug. 29, 1973, he and two accomplices attempted to rob a bank in Boston, MA. One of his accomplices was shot and killed by police and Frechette and the other man were arrested. Frechette was tried and sentenced to six to 15 years in prison. See more »
