“Rockefeller” Guilty: Sentenced to 5 Years
After four days of deliberation, the jury found Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter (“Clark Rockefeller”) guilty of custodial kidnapping and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon charge. As I write this blog, I am listening live to the sentencing hearing at WCVB’s web page. I am grateful to them for their coverage of this trial as well as the abundant resources they have provided during the pendancy of this trial on their web site.
Citing “Rockefeller’s” disregard for his daughter’s welfare when he kidnapped her, Judge Frank M. Gaziano sentenced him to five years for custodial kidnapping and three years for assault and battery with the sentences to be served concurrently (at the same time).
