Real estate heir Robert Durst pleads guilty on weapons charge; paves way for California murder trial

Posted By Administration, Thursday, February 4, 2016

NEW ORLEANS – A New York real estate heir pleaded guilty in New Orleans on Wednesday to a weapons charge and agreed to an 85-month prison sentence, a move that could usher in his extradition to California to face murder charges.
