Phil Spector Gets 19-to-Life

NBC Los Angeles/City News EXCERPT:
Legendary music producer Phil Spector was sentenced Friday to 19 years to life in prison for killing actress and House of Blues VIP hostess Lana Clarkson in the foyer of his Alhambra mansion more than six years ago.
Spector did not speak on his own behalf during his sentencing at the downtown Los Angeles courthouse, but defense attorney Doron Weinberg -- while extending sympathy to the victim's family -- maintained that his client "did not kill Lana Clarkson."
At the conclusion of his second trial, the 69-year-old record industry figure was convicted April 13 of second-degree murder for the 40-year-old woman's Feb. 3, 2003, shooting death. The first jury to hear the case against him deadlocked 10-2 in favor of guilt in September 2007.
With jurors from both trials looking on in a packed courtroom, Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler ordered Spector to serve 15 years to life -- the mandatory term on the second-degree murder charge -- and an additional four-year term for using a gun in the commission of the crime.
END EXCERPT
Well, he looks like he's been dead five years, will he get credit for that?

Unlike his victim he will continue to breathe the free air and be able to watch the sun come up in the morning.
