DURST JAILED FOR ANOTHER 9 MONTHS

Robert Durst will be spending another nine months behind bars.

Just 11 days after he was paroled and rearrested, Durst pleaded guilty to two federal gun charges stemming from his seven weeks on the lam in a bizarre Galveston, Texas, murder case.

The charges carried a maximum penalty of 15 years imprisonment and a $500,000 fine.

But in a deal worked out between his lawyers and Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Reed, Durst will spend nine months in prison, followed by two years of supervised release.

During the hearing, Judge Timothy Savage repeatedly asked Durst if he understood the deal.

“I have no problem with the sentence,” Durst replied.

Savage is expected to approve the deal after getting reports on Durst’s psychological and criminal background. He set another hearing for Nov. 29.

Durst was charged with interstate transportation of a firearm while a fugitive and while a felon.

When Durst was nabbed for shoplifting in Bath, Pa., after the seven weeks on the run, he had two .38-caliber handguns in his rental car.

Durst jumped bail shortly after his arrest in the slaying of Morris Black, 71, his neighbor in Galveston. Durst was acquitted of murdering the elderly man even though he admitted carving up Black’s body and dumping the parts in Galveston Bay. He was paroled on that sentence less than two weeks ago.
