Dr. Jack Kevorkian who was a leading force in the assisted suicide movement and who was imprisoned for his role in the death of a Michigan man, will be released on Friday, June 1, 2007 after serving more than eight years of his sentence.
The State of Michigan anticipates that Dr. Kevorkian, now 79, will hit the lecture circuit and make a considerable amount of money. There are reports of offers of $100,000 per lecture. Thus, Michigan intends to pursue Dr. Kevorkian for the cost of his incarceration.
