Kermit Gosnell, the late-term abortionist found guilty of first-degree murder in the deaths of three infants born alive, was spared the death penalty.

Gosnell agreed to forego any appeals process in return for taking the death penalty off the table.

Instead the Philadelphia doctor will received two life sentences without parole for the deaths of two infants in exchange for waiving the right to appeal.

Gosnell's lawyer, Jack McMahon, said his client has no regrets about going to trial.

"He wanted this case aired out in a courtroom and it got aired out in a courtroom in a fair way. And now he's accepting what will happen. He's an intelligent guy," McMahon said Tuesday, adding that Gosnell would now plead to pending federal drug charges.

On Wednesday, Gosnell may face a mandatory third life term for the third infant when he's sentenced for an overdose death of a patient and a multitude of lesser charges.
