I wonder what made her or the broker feel they could get one past the SEC?

But she's not there yet.

Poor Martha and she feels so bad for her employees. Well not bad enough to keep paying them. lol

If I was on the jury, i'd have voted for the death penalty, but I understand it wasn't even an option. And her broker, Peter Bocanovic, received a similiar sentance. I understand the judge was not impressed with him singing "That's what friends are for..." as his defense
I still think he is innocent...everybody knows that stockbrokers and lawyers are above reproach.
Ken Lay is innocent also...that's what he said in his public statement...and added that his (former) employess, the ones that haven't committed suicide, after their financial ruin, still wish him well

Yes but Bocanovic was only fined 4k. Chump change to him and the 51k to Martha. Hardly worth going through a long trial. With Martha though she want's to save her public image. That is so she can still make millions.

I believe she got 5 months time, which would be spent on house arrest. Is this correct? I am happy they are finally doing something to the celebrities when they do wrong. Too many times they are allowed to walk free.

From my understanding of this writing nothing was done because of an appeal. It appears she'll go to jail if she looses. House arrest is a little to tame IMO.

If she goes to jail, she will probably have the place looking ship-shape and more attractive in no time. Maybe they'll rotate her between the kitchen, laundry, janitorial, and landscaping jobs so she can add some of her magic touch all over.

She got 5 months jail (federal country club...er...prison) and 5 months house arrest.

Personally I think if she had just been some schmoe off the street she would have gotten probation. And they are trying to do the same thing to Limbaugh.

Actually I think that if she was indeed guilty...and the jury thought she was...she should of gotten a higher sentence not because she is Martha Stewart former ceo of MSO but because she was a member of the board of governors of the NY Stock Exchange.
