Land of Poutine!
It was 5 months in, and 5 months out (home confinenment) + 2 yrs probation, and $30,000 in fines.

I also believe it way too lenient.

C'mon, a millionair forced to pay $30, 000. that's like me paying $300 Big Whup. And house confinement? Can you say 'vacation'? If I had a house in the Hamptons, and was 'forced' to stay there for 5 months.. man, the many times the UPS guy would be at my door, and the amount I would spend on hobbies, etc... I would have some sweet rockets and R/C airplanes by the time I was 'free'

And it's martha, she likes home!! "And that's a good thing!"

LOL Exactly what I was thinking.

She's just going to sit there and design new toilet seat covers...

Then she will probably make more millions when she comes out because she has so many new designs. I very much dislike her.

This is just another example of the huge differences in justice for those who have money. If it were one of us, 5-10 years.....


And she will write a book or make a movie and make millions.......

Prison may not be the most enjoyable experience for her, though...

And I am guessing the hobby shops near me would be bogged down with backorders from the thousands of body tubes I would order with my remaining millions... :rolleyes:

5 months isn't even enough time for her to measure, order, and receive her custom curtains for her cell.

And $30k!!! Small price to pay in comparison to the book deal and movie rights she'll be getting out of this thing.

Don't get me going...

Martha Stewart is like the "home decorator" queen..... She has made millions with cookbooks, cloths, "home" stuff etc.

What she did???? Well, she got some "inside" info on one companies which she had stock in...... She cashed in a lot of those stocks, right before they went down and saved herself a good bit of money...........

Guys, get the story straight.

She was accused and indicted on a lot of charges but...

The only thing she was convicted on was lying to a federal prosecutor and that was the ONLY conviction!

None of the other stuff would stick so that was the only thing they got her on.

Actually 5 months and $30,000 for lying seems kinda stiff.

But that's more than Clinton got...and a lot more than Bush will get for lying to us...did I say that out loud???

sandman:D

I think she got what she deserved. If you can’t play by the rules then don’t whine when your caught. Securities fraud would have carried a much longer sentence, she should be happy!

The best part of this whole story is that the stock went back up well past the price she got for her stock :p :p :p

Yeah too bad

She got 5 months at the Danbury Federal Country Club, 5 moths restricted to her multi million dollar house, and 30K in fines.

OTOH she made almost $100,000,000 today as her 61% share in Martha Stewart Living gained 30% in value.

go figure:rolleyes:

I wonder if the stock gain is due to people feeling bad for her....

I don't think anyone feels bad for her, they're just figuring that with the light sentence that the company will be OK again.

Martha has got a low public image now for her troubles. She's lost quite a bit of money from stores dropping her products. What she got is quite lenient because of what has indirectly happened. No, my mom doesn't subscribe to her mags!

I kinda thought that the sentence was too light. If you or I pulled a stunt like that, who knows how long we would be locked up.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I think the law goes too easy on celebrities.:rolleyes:

I'm just glad it's over, I was getting so tired of hearing about it.
