Gary Michael Hilton pleaded guilty today in the death of Meredith Emerson on the North Georgia Mountains. A plea agreement was signed earlier today and he was quickly sentenced to life in prison without parole.
It is still entirely possible that should he be tried in Florida for the disappearance of a woman there he could face the death penalty, which is what I am assuming he was trying to avoid by entering a guilty plea in court today in Dawson County.
Hilton attended the hearing today in an orange county jail jumpsuit and a bulletproof vest.
