MARTHA STEWART

Would someone please tell me what purpose is served by sending Martha Stewart to prison. She isn't a threat to anyone. I doubt that she's going to lie to federal officers again. She wan't convicted for selling the stock. She was convicted for lying about it to investigators. Incidentally, she was not under oath at the time. I didn't know that lying during routine questioning could get you sent to jail

P.S. I am not a fan of the decorating maven.

Well.....I think they sent her to jail becuase she was a rich, powerful WOMAN, and they were trying to make an example of her.  An example of WHAT to WHOM, I'm not sure...  Lisa  :-]

I actually did like her. I loved her crafts stuff and I still get a newsletter from her website in my email. I think she was ramrodded. After all, the guy got the same sentencing and wasn't his charges for actual insider trading. :-) ---Robbie
