ASSISTED SUICIDE: A Look Back at Dr. Jack’s Career
Late last month, a Michigan jury found Jack Kevorkian guilty of murder for his role in the death of Thomas Youk. Millions of Americans had watched a videotape of Mr. Youk's death on "60 Minutes." Kevorkian had tangled with the law before, but juries refused to convict him for assisting suicides. In this week's Stryker's Corner, California Healthline's Jeff Stryker looks back on Dr. Kevorkian's remarkable career as he awaits sentencing and the prospect of spending the rest of his life in prison.
