Phil Spector Jailed For 19 Years
2009-05-30 by Nick Butler EMERITUS | 30 Comments

Iconic pop producer Phil Spector has been sentenced to 19 years in jail for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson.

The ongoing court case was finalised last month, when Spector was found guilty of the 2003 murder. The actress was found dead at Spector's home, having been killed by a single gunshot to the head.

It is expected that Spector's lawyers will appeal the decision.

Phil Spector was always messed up in the head. He used get to takes out of people in studio by pointing a gun at them. Pretty f***ed if you ask me. Now he'll get a taste of Big Bubba's a**hole.

by the way, the sentence was 19-life, actually. 25-life is the common sentence, so this isn't very far off.

Ahaha, Cocaine's comment wins

19's sort of a joke though when you consider he was given 15 years for the murder. The extra 4 years were for personal use of a firearm. I don't see him living through half of that sentence mind you, but we'll have to see what his defense will try to pull out

While on tour with his first act, The Teddy Bears ("To Know Him Is To Love Him"), the 18-year-old Spector is accosted in a men's urinal. Short and unprepared to defend himself, Phil is urinated on by four street toughs. The incident so mortifies and frightens Spector that he keeps a bodyguard around him (and a gun on him) from that day on. (1958)


I think we can all blame the crazy "street toughs" who pissed on him for all his craziness. I know I would be traumatized if I were both short and unprepared to defend myself.
