Martha Stewart, in her first interview since she was indicted in a stock-trading scandal in June, says she is scared but does not believe she will go to prison.
“Who wouldn’t be scared?” Stewart said, according to the ABC interview excerpt. “Of course I’m scared. The last place I would ever want to go is prison. And I don’t think I will be going to prison, though.”
Stewart, 62, is accused of selling ImClone Systems stock in 2001 because she was tipped that the family of ImClone founder Sam Waksal was selling. The next day, the stock plunged on a negative report from the Food and Drug Administration.
I think she should do some time in jail! With the evidence presented thus far IMHO I think she is guilty as ever!!!
The five counts against her carry a total maximum prison sentence of 30 years, but Stewart would likely receive far less under federal sentencing guidelines if convicted.
Why the special treatment?
Waksal, a longtime friend of Stewart’s, pleaded guilty to instructing his daughter to sell her shares because he had early word of the FDA report. He is serving a seven-year sentence in federal prison.
I can’t wait to see how this pans out. Will the cameras be allowed in the court room?
Who here thinks she should do some hard time?
