Phil Spector Receives The Maximum Sentence



It was back in April that Phil Spector was found guilty of second-degree murder in the death of actress Lana Clarkson after only 30 hours of jury deliberation. Now he's been sentenced to the maximum 19 years to life.

From CNN:

That means Spector, 69, would be 88 before he would be eligible for parole.

Slumped, stone-faced and wearing a dark suit and bright red tie, he sat silently throughout his sentencing by Judge Larry Paul Fidler.

Spector's lawyer gave a $17,000 check to Donna Clarkson, the victim's mother, to pay for her funeral expenses -- part of the court-ordered sentence.
