    Since 2015, Lewin has been committed to convicting Robert Durst for murder. He finally succeeded It was a thrill to watch a master at work.

    I have arrived early to get front row seat.
    (In addition to admiring John Lewin, I admit to enjoying Judge Mark Windham too...he seems so LA!)

    I'm right there with you. This should be so satisfying for Lewin.

    So I guess the only people allowed to give an impact statement, would be Ms. Berman's children? And, I betcha Durst is a no show today.

    Agree. Since court seems to be cancelled for the 18th, hope judge reaches sentence today.

    It's a mandatory life sentence. I think it will be done today.

    Bob is very pale and is sinking deeper and deeper into his wheel-chair.

    It is finally over. Life in prison, no possibility of parole. Durst will appeal. It is still essentially over for him.

    #RobertDurst - Media/public were just let in the courtroom. Sentencing should begin soon.

    Durst has been brought into the courtroom.

    WE ARE LIVE in #RobertDurst sentencing.

    Durst1.jpg

    At least 3 jurors have shown up for sentencing.

    #RobertDurst watches the 3 jury members walk in.

    Durst2.jpg

    There are NINE jury members that have shown up for sentencing.

    Prosecutor John Lewin addressing the defense motion for a new trial.

    Lewin1.jpg

    #RobertDurst is carefully following along on his tablet as Lewin speaks then he looks up at Lewin.

    Durst3.jpg

    Defense attorney David Chesnoff as he listens to prosecutor John Lewin.

    John Lewin in countering the points the defense had in their motion for new trial. Judge Windham told him it wasn't necessary, but....go ahead... This is what the defense team looks like during this.

    Defense.jpg

    #RobertDurst might be getting a little sleepy to Lewin going on and on.

    Durst4.jpg

    Defense attorney Dick DeGuerin in response to Lewin wrapping up - Don't dance in the end zone, people will think you've never been there before.

    Dick1.jpg

    #RobertDurst has a mustache.

    #RobertDurst pulls his mask down and appears to be breathing very heavily.

    Durst5.jpg

    As Judge Windham delivers his ruling on defense motion for new trial, which he DENIED, everyone around Durst watching him pretty closely right now. He was offered water but didn't take it.

    Susan Berman's cousin, Denny Marcus gives a victim impact statement. "I was robbed and my beautiful son was robbed of an absolutely extraordinary, unforgettable brilliant person whose life was savagely taken from her..."

    Now Susan's godson, Sareb Kaufman. He calls Susan his mother. He said Susan's murder changed everything for him.
