Detroit man pleads guilty in theft of dad's body for 'resurrection' attempt
DETROIT (AP) - A man accused of stealing his father's body from a Detroit cemetery with the hope of bringing him back to life has pleaded guilty in exchange for avoiding prison.
Vincent Bright pleaded guilty on Monday to a charge of disinterring a body. He faces sentencing Sept 24 in county Circuit Court.
"He seems to be doing well," defense lawyer Gerald Karafa told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
In exchange for the guilty plea, he said Bright will get probation with credit for time served. The judge ruled that Bright could be released on bail, Mr Karafa said.
