Dr. Kermit Gosnell shown in courtroom artist sketch during his sentencing at Philadelphia Common Pleas Court

Dr. Kermit Gosnell is shown in a courtroom artist sketch during his sentencing at Philadelphia Common Pleas Court in Philadelphia May 15. Gosnell was sent to prison to serve three life terms without parole for murdering babies during late-term abortions and for other crimes at his squalid clinic. In a deal that spared him from the death penalty, Gosnell faced a judge in a two-day sentencing after waiving his right to appeal his conviction on three counts of first-degree murder.
