While Kyles and Hollins have since both been cleared of involuntary manslaughter charges - making this charge the only criminal charge they'll be sentenced for - the [air were found guilty of contempt in housing court in September of this year for refusing to close the club after receiving four notices to do so. We'll update as soon as we hear. [Tribune]

Update: Both Kyles and Hollins have been sentenced to two years in prison.
