Famously Obscure Music Producer Phil Spector Guilty Of Murder


The jury gets it right the second time around. Super freak Phil Spector was found guilty today of the 2003 second degree murder of actress Lana Clarkson which carries essentially a life sentence for the 69 year old now convicted murderer.

Sporting a snazzy “Barack Obama Rocks” button Spector had his one million dollar bail revoked and was hauled off to jail soon after the verdict was read.

Believe it or not this guy was responsible for some really fabulous music way back in the day. Hopefully he has a really nice stash of concert posters to plaster all over his cell walls.


Music producer Phil Spector was found guilty Monday of second-degree murder in the February 2003 shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson. Jurors also found Spector personally used the firearm while committing the crime at his Alhambra mansion. Sentencing has been set for May 29. Second-degree murder carries a penalty of 15 years to life in prison. The judge denied bail and Spector, wearing a fire-engine red tie and pocket square, was taken into custody after the verdict was announced. He also wore a “Barack Obama Rocks” button on his left suit lapel. Spector and his wife entered the courtroom at about 2 p.m., and the verdict was read at about 15 minutes later. His son and daughter were seated next to him at the counsel’s table.
