'Sopranos' Star Lillo Brancato Cleared Of Murder
Brancato - who was shot and wounded by Enchautegui - was convicted of the lesser charge of attempted burglary on Monday and now faces a three and fifteen years in prison. If handed the minimum sentence the star could be excused from serving any more jail time because he has already spent three years behind bars. Brancato will be sentenced on January 9.
The actor took the stand earlier this month to tell the jury he suffered from judgment-impairing heroin withdrawals on the night of the shooting. He claimed he had known the owner of the house for several years and had permission to go inside and take painkillers and other pills - but didn't know the man had died earlier that year.
Armento was convicted of first-degree murder in November and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
