For once it looks like the old saying "what goes around, comes around" is true. She will more than likely appeal it and drag it out in court until she gets it down to probation. Would be nice to see her get the same justice all of the rest of us get though.

I can just see her new cook book and modern living book when she gets out. How to feed 400 folks for 50 cents a day with just bread and salami..........sure is going to be a drastic change i her lifestyle. It would be bad enough for a common person like me but she is used to the high society style and nice spotless clean sheets and linens of the higest quality instead of stripes or orange canvass and denim.No more fancy place settings. Its gonna be a big change for her........but IMHO she deserves it 110%. Bet she winds up in ther kitchen area:D

ok, I know some of you are going to laugh at me, but I honestly feel sorry for her. I am not so sure what she did deserves time in prison. What did she do anyway? Hummm...seems elusive doesn't it?

Well when the judge threw out the most serious charge last week, I thought that was it, she's going to get off. I think anyone would do the same, dump the stock if you knew it would tank the next day. The real victim is her broker, what choice did he have? If he didn't warn her he was finished and if he did warn her he was finished. I'll bet he does real time and she either drags it out to hardly anything, wins on appeal, or serves a year in a country club.

It's beginning to look like the only safe investment things to lie about are cattle futures.

Well, here's more to think about!

Martha Prosecutor Gave Pardongate Pass to Hillary
NewsMax ^ | 3/5/04 | Limbacher

The U.S. Attorney who went after Martha Stewart in what looks to many like a prosecutorial jihad hasn't always been so tough on powerful women.

In fact, just two years before his team nailed Stewart for lying to investigators about insider trading, U.S. Attorney James Comey let Hillary Clinton slide on charges she traded presidential clemency for votes in the village of New Square, New York.

By the time Stewart was convicted on Friday, Comey was long gone from the offices of the U.S. Southern District, having moved up the Justice Department food chain to assume the position of deputy attorney general.

But it was his decision to target Stewart in 2002, using what New York Times columnist William Safire described as "novel legal theories," that now threatens to put thousands of Martha Stewart OmniMedia employees out on the street.

Comey, however, was much more deferential to Mrs. Clinton. When President Clinton commuted the sentences of four New Square rabbis after their village voted 1200 to 14 for Hillary in her Senate race against Rick Lazio, the ambitious prosecutor concluded it was all just an amazing coincidence.

The case against Clinton was dropped even though Comey reportedly uncovered an eyewitness who said he saw the former first lady discussing the clemency arrangements at a pre-election meeting - something Clinton had previously insisted never happened when grilled by Pardongate probers.

Fellow Pardongate target Denise Rich likewise seems to have escaped the Martha treatment, even though Comey's agents turned up reams of evidence suggesting Rich was less than truthful when she told probers that there was no connection between her husband's pardon and the $400,000 she donated to the Clinton Presidential Library.

Even more curiously, Comey took a pass on what looked to many like an ironclad case of pardon selling by former first brother Roger Clinton, who, when subpoenaed by Comey's team, simply declined to show-up.

Of course, had Martha pulled a stunt like that, a SWAT team would have likely been dispatched to round up the desperado diva.

George, you make a very good point! It is a sad statement about our alleged "Justice System". Martha Stewart is by now means an angel but she is small fry as you say. It would seem to me that this type of hype and attention would be given to more damaging criminal misconduct.
