Robert Chambers’ girlfriend, Shawn Kovell, stated in state Supreme Court a few months ago that she and Chambers sold drugs to an undercover detective. Under the terms of her deal, she was was remanded to a rehabilitation center. When she completes her program she will be permitted to withdraw the guilty plea and plead to a lesser charge. This will allow Kovell to receive a sentence of probation. Her lawyer said that she was a drug addict at that particilar time and that it was her first arrest.
Chambers became a tabloid favorite after the death of Jennifer Levin as they engaged in a sexual encounter in New York’s Central Park. She was a graduate of the Baldwin School and was just 18 years old. The murder created headlines and the fact he was a good looking, privileged prep school youth who went bad added to the sexiness of the story.
Chambers pleaded guilty in 1988 to manslaughter and was released in 2003. He served the maximum 15 years because of discipline problems behind bars which included drug dealing.
