A self-described pimp was sentenced Wednesday to 16 years to life in Nevada state prison in a rape and robbery case that served as a prelude to his death penalty trial later this year in a Las Vegas Strip shooting and fiery crash that left three people dead.
A Nevada judge agreed Wednesday to postpone sentencing until Feb. 26 for a self-described pimp who was convicted of sexual assault last September in one case and is due to stand trial later this year in a Las Vegas Strip shooting and fiery crash that left three people dead.
"His history is not as bad as they say," Langford said. "There is going to be an appeal of this. That's why he doesn't want to address the court."
His lawyer, Robert Langford, told Judge Kathleen Delaney that Harris will appeal his conviction and sentence, and that Harris wasn't the bad person he had been made out to be.
