Robert Durst is Finally Going to Prison!
The controversial real estate heir, who was the subject of HBO’s documentary series The Jinx, was sentenced to prison by U.S. District Judge Kurt Engelhardt after he pled guilty to a weapons charge.
On Wednesday, Durst’s pled guilty for illegally carrying a .38-caliber revolver on March 16 2015.
Durst, who was arrested with the gun in New Orleans last year, had agreed to a plea deal in which he will serve seven years and one month. Previously, he was looking at a 10-year sentence.
But this isn’t the only crime that Durst is having to face the music for … the billionaire still has to deal with murder charges in Los Angeles for killing his longtime friend Susan Berman.
The Jinx follows Durst, who has been under the microscope after his first wife Kathleen disappeared in 1982 and was never found. Then in 2003, the businessman was arrested for murdering his neighbor in Texas, Morris Black. He was acquitted of the murder, despite testifying that he had dismembered Black’s body after “accidentally” shooting him.
But karma is finally catching up with the slippery man. During the final scene of the documentary, Durst, who forgot he still had a microphone on, is heard in the bathroom confession to killing “them all.”
After the show’s finale on March 15, 2015, Durst checked into a hotel in New Orleans under a false name, and carrying a gun. He was later arrested under suspicion that he was trying to flee the country.
It may not be a murder conviction … yet, but we’re glad to see that Durst is finally being made to pay for something!
