MUG SHOTS: Historical

Dr. Jack Kevorkian

Dr. Jack Kevorkian was convicted in April 1999 of murder. Photographed by the Michigan Department of Corrections, Kevorkian is serving a prison sentence of 10 to 25 years. The euthanasia crusader's conviction stemmed from his assistance in the suicide of a 52-year-old man suffering from Lou Gehrig's disease. A videotape of that suicide later aired on the CBS newsmagazine '60 Minutes,' and was used as evidence against him during his Oakland County Circuit Court trial.

I honestly think he wasa good man just trying to help some one end their suffering.
