The judge’s decision on Wednesday marked a significant moment in the case that had shocked the community.

Michl, who had been in custody since November 27, 2023, pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree murder and one count of first-degree burglary. The court heard that Michl had targeted Latt due to his friendship with director A.V. Rockwell, whom Michl had been stalking for months, prompting multiple restraining orders.

Latt, known for his work with Lead With Love and various entertainment companies, succumbed to his injuries shortly after the attack. His legacy as a champion of social justice and equality in the industry lives on.

Following the sentencing, District Attorney George Gasc√≥n expressed a sense of closure for Latt’s family and the community as a whole. Latt’s untimely death reverberated throughout Hollywood, where he came from a family deeply connected to the entertainment world. His brother, Franklin Latt, and mother, Michelle Satter, have established themselves in prominent roles within the industry.

The impact of Latt’s work and advocacy for a more just and inclusive society continues to inspire those who knew him. As the community mourns his loss, the sentencing of Michl offers some semblance of justice for a life taken too soon. The memory of Michael Latt will forever remain a symbol of resilience and dedication to social change.
