An Indian judge found Bollywood superstar Salman Khan guilty Wednesday of killing a homeless man in a 2002 hit-and-run after a night out drinking.
Judge D.W. Deshpande convicted the 49-year-old of culpable homicide for crashing his SUV into a group of homeless men in India's entertainment capital Mumbai and then fleeing the scene, according to an AFP journalist inside the courtroom.
Khan, who blamed his driver for the crash, faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and was expected to be taken into custody from the court.
