From NBC Philadelphia:

The wife of former Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell and some of his staff will finally learn how long they’ll spend behind bars for their role in the “House of Horrors” later this month.

Pearl Gosnell, 52, pled guilty in December 2011 to four crimes including criminal conspiracy, corrupt organization and performing illegal abortions.

Sentencing has been on hold as a Philadelphia jury weighed murder charges against the former doctor. On Tuesday afternoon, in a deal with prosecutors, Gosnell waived his right to appeal in return for two consecutive life sentences, [when] he had been facing the death penalty. Court officials have set a sentencing date of May 29 for the remaining charges.

Several of Pearl Gosnell’s co-workers from the Women’s Medical Society, Kermit Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic, will also be sentenced on the same day.
