At long last, justice for Lana Clarkson.

Phil Spector was found GUILTY by the jury in the murder trial and sentencing has been set for May 29th at 11 a.m.

Alan Jackson (Prosecutor) - "The sentence in this case is mandatory. It's 15 to life, with a minimum of 18 years being served before parole eligible. The gun charge adds 3-10 on top of that."


Defense attorney Weinberg tried to get Spector out of jail on 1 million bail, but Judge Fidler denied that request and ruled that Spector would immediately be remanded to jail.

It's been reported by several media outlets that Rachel Spector cried as the verdict was read.
