A former abortion clinic worker will spend a year on probation after pleading guilty to perjury and testifying against her former boss at his Philadelphia murder trial.
Elizabeth Hampton is the first of several co-defendants being sentenced this week after testifying against Dr. Kermit Gosnell.
Gosnell is serving life in prison after a jury convicted him this month of killing three babies born alive at his clinic.
The 55-year-old Hampton is a one-time foster sister to Gosnell’s third wife, Pearl. She admitted lying to a grand jury about a patient’s 2009 overdose death.
Hampton and her husband worked low-level jobs at the clinic and rented their house from Gosnell.
Pearl Gosnell is set to be sentenced Wednesday for performing illegal, third-term abortions.
Two other former employees are also scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday by Common Pleas Judge Benjamin Lerner.
