Supporters of Jennifer Hudson leave the criminal courts building after a Cook County judge convicted William Balfour to three life sentences plus 120 years for the murders of the mother, brother and nephew of Grammy and Oscar award winner Jennifer Hudson, Tuesday, July 24, 2012, in Chicago. The sentencing came after Circuit Judge Charles Burns denied a request from Balfour for a new trial. Balfour faced a mandatory life sentence. Illinois does not have the death penalty. (AP Photo/M.
