Self-help guru convicted in deaths from ceremony - Yahoo! News

Self-help guru convicted in deaths from ceremony - Yahoo! News: "They came in search of spiritual enlightenment, using the sweat lodge as a way to break through whatever was holding them back in life. James Arthur Ray told his seminar participants that it would be 'hellacious' and that they would feel like they were dying, but would do so only metaphorically.
But three people did die following the October 2009 ceremony, and on Wednesday, Ray was found guilty of three counts of negligent homicide. He could have been convicted on an option of manslaughter, but the jury of eight men and four women decided on the lesser charge instead.
The conviction came quickly — after less than 10 hours of deliberations — following four months of testimony and hundreds of exhibits. Prosecutors asked that Ray be taken into custody immediately, but the judge denied their request."
