Millionaire Robert Durst pleads not guilty to federal charge
NEW ORLEANS - Jailed millionaire Robert Durst has pleaded not guilty to a federal charge of possessing a gun after a felony conviction.
Durst told U.S. District Judge Lance Africk that he would plead not guilty during a hearing Tuesday afternoon.
Durst is an estranged member of the wealthy family that operates 1 World Trade Center. He also faces a murder charge in California and two state weapons charges in Louisiana, including one of a felon possessing a gun.
The judge set a trial date on the federal charge for June 22.
Durst was arrested early March 15, less than 12 hours before HBO aired the final segment of "The Jinx," in which - off camera in a bathroom but with the microphone still live - Durst whispers, "There it is. You're caught!"
