Durst was arrested in New Orleans in March of last year, on the day that he appeared to confess to murder in the final episode of the the HBO show he sparked into production.
Of course, those seven years on that gun charge are the least of Durst’s worries. He is still set to face trial in Los Angeles for the murder of Susan Berman, who Durst allegedly killed so that she wouldn’t speak to authorities regarding the disappearance of his first wife, Kathleen McCormack. At sentencing today, Durst’s attorneys asked that he be allowed to serve the seven years at a prison in California.
The Berman trial is set for this summer and Durst is also still being sued for $100 million by McCormack’s parents, plus he’s not even the most famous alleged true crime murderer of the 2010s anymore.
