The Jinx's Robert Durst Pleads Guilty And Is Heading To Prison For 7 Years — But Not For Murder!

Filed under: Legal MattersBusted!

This is an interesting development.

Robert Durst has been a suspect in several murders, and he finally admitted guilt in a New Orleans federal court on Wednesday — but not for any of the killings.

The New York real estate heir finally plead guilty to those gun charges for illegally possessing a .38-caliber revolver.

Last year, the subject of the HBO docu-series The Jinx was arrested by the FBI, who feared that Durst was about to flee the country.

During his arrest at the J.W. Marriott Hotel, where he had registered under an alias name, officials discovered a handgun. Since the 72-year-old was a convicted felon at the time, it was illegal for him to possess a firearm.

Under a plea bargain arrangement, Durst will be sentenced to 85 months in federal prison, and will eventually be transferred to prison in El Lay by August 18 — where he will face murder charges.

Last year, the millionaire was arrested for the execution-style shooting of his college friend Susan Berman – an act in which authorities think was to keep her from talking to investigators about the disappearance of his first wife Kathleen McCormack in 1982.

Durst has gotten off for murder before with the help of the best defense lawyers in the country — he was never even charged in the disappearance of his first wife!

He was also acquitted of murder charges in 2003, despite admitting that he cut up his neighbor Morris Black and threw the parts into Galveston Bay. Allegedly, the death was an accident after the two men fought over a gun.

But now, it looks like Durst's luck is finally running out…

The Jinx Villain Robert Durst May Pay For More Crimes — He's Being Sued For $100 Million By His Missing Wife's Family!

This sure would make for an interesting second season…

The story of an HBO mini-series turned real-life murder scandal captured most of America in 2015, and it looks like Robert Durst's legal problems just got even worse.

After the real estate heir was arrested for first-degree murder the day before the finale of The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst, the 72-year-old is now facing yet another lawsuit.

Kathleen McCormack was Robert's wife from 1973 until she went missing in 1982, and although her death was never confirmed, her family is now suing her ex for $100 million!

Kathie's 101-year-old mother Ann McCormack and three sisters have filed a suit against Robert on the grounds that he denied them the right to a proper funeral after committing the alleged murder, and if they win, they'll be taking almost his entire fortune.

Robert has been in jail since March and will most likely be sentenced to five years more years on a gun charge he received after his mini-series aired in February.

Of course, he could face even more time behind bars thanks to his televised murder admission.

Do U see Robert Durst ever being a free man again??
