Pearl Gosnell, wife of Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, along with several co-workers from the Women’s Medical Society will finally learn how long of a sentence behind bars they will serve later this month, according to NBC Philadelphia.

Mrs. Gosnell pled guilty to criminal conspiracy, corrupt organization and performing illegal abortions in late 2011. Sherry West, Adrienne Moton, Steven Massof, and Lynda Williams all pled guilty as well to third-degree murder, conspiracy and corrupt organization charges.

Kermit Gosnell was found guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of three babies earlier this week. He was also charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of former clinic patient Karnamaya Mongar.

NBC Philadelphia explains that the sentencing has been on hold because the jury was still weighing murder charges against Kermit Gosnell.
