Vincent Bright, 49, had taken Clarence Bright, 93 away from an area cemetery shortly before burial in hopes that Clarence would be brought back to life.
DETROIT (WWJ/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 Monday to a charge of disinterring a body. He faces sentencing Sept. 24 in Wayne 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, Bright will get probation with credit for time served. The judge ruled that Bright could be released on bail, Karafa said. A pre-sentencing review will help determine the details of Bright’s probation, he said.
A conviction on the disinterring a body charge could have brought up to 10 years in prison.
