Phil Spector

Prison: California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison, Corcoran, Calif.

Phil Spector, the rock music impresario behind such hits as “Da Doo Ron Ron,” and “You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling,” was convicted in April 2009 of murdering a young actress at his mansion in 2003 after a night of drinking.

He was later sentenced to 19 years to life in prison for the murder of actress Lana Clarkson, who was shot through the mouth in the music producer’s home.

The judge also ordered Spector to pay $16,811 in funeral expenses, $9,740 to a state victims’ restitution fund and other fees.

Spector, who is 71, will be 88 years old before becoming eligible for parole.
