Phil Spector And The Murder Of Lana Clarkson

April 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Phil Spector And The Murder Of Lana Clarkson
It sounds like an Agatha Christie story – a brilliant but troubled music producer takes a very beautiful Was Phil Spector Innocent of murdering Lana Clarkson? No. actress who is down on her luck back to his Tyrolian mansion for a drink. Two people are in the room. There is one gun. She ends up dead. Was it a murder? An accident? A suicide? A brilliant prosecutor and his superb assistant had to fight off the O. J. Simpson dream team to convince a jury that Phil Spector was guilty.

The problem: not only did the defendant have nearly unlimited resources and the ability to purchase the best attorneys and experts in the world, but he had history on his side. No person who was a celebrity before their arrest had ever been convicted of murder in the USA!

The riveting murder trial of the bizarre Phil Spector played out very differently than the trial Phil Spector and Watergateof O. J. Simpson. In this case, a competent judge and a superb prosecutor made the evidence the center of the case,  You will be fascinated by the intricate and detailed strategies used by each team of lawyers and the colorful cast cast of characters called as witnesses.
