29 May Phil Spector Sentenced To 19 Years In Prison
Music Producer Phil Spector was sentenced to 19 years in prison for the murder of Lana Clarkson. Lana was shot in the mouth, with Spector’s gun.
Spector, 69, will have to serve 19 years before he is eligible for parole. If never paroled he will spend the rest of his life in prision. Prosecutors say the shooting was part of a cycle of gun play and violence that Spector had towards women for over 20 years.
Shortly before Clarkson was shot, Spector told British journalist Mick Brown in an interview that he had a bipolar personality and had “devils that fight inside me”.
Clarkson’s family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Spector, which has yet to have it’s day in court.
