NEW ORLEANS, LA - Looks like infamous real estate mogul Robert Durst is finally headed to prison, now that he's copped a plea deal to get a reduced sentence of seven years on a federal weapons charge in New Orleans.

Last year, 72-year-old Durst was picked up in The Crescent City while illegally carrying a .38-caliber revolver.

Of course, Durst is already notorious for being accused of a string of crimes including the disappearance of his first wife back in 1982.

Durst is an estranged heir of the wealthy New York real estate family that currently runs 1 World Trade Center in The Big Apple.

Regardless of the gun charge sentence, Durst still faces extradition to California for another murder charge of allegedly killing a friend back in 2008.

Durst's original prosecutor in New York, Judge Jeanine Pirro tweeted about the plea deal, saying "Good for the Feds. Now it's time to convict him of murder!"

Durst's long-time attorney Dick DeGeurin is confident about taking on the California murder charge.

"Oh yeah, he didn't do it," DeGeurin insisted. "That's about as confident as you can get."

But HBO fans know that Durst's voice can be heard possibly confessing to several murders in "The Jinx" documentary on Durst that aired in 2015.

"What the hell did I do?" Durst's voice can be heard saying when he thought his microphone had been turned off. "...Killed them all, of course."

This sounds like another must-see TV trial coming soon to LA.

So get your popcorn ready, and stay tuned for more!
