Helmsley was sued by Charles Bell, a former employee who alleged that he was discharged solely for being homosexual. A jury agreed and ordered Mrs. Helmsley to pay Bell $11,200,000 in damages; a judge subsequently reduced this amount to $554,000.
She was convicted but eventually managed to have her sentences, originally decades long, largely set aside except for 21 months, which she served.
