And To Think She Paid For This Advice
Lawyers for Martha Stewart plan to say that a prison sentence for the domestic trendsetter could harm her company and lead to lay-offs of some of its 500 employees, the Wall Street Journal said on Monday.Think the judge will be swayed by that argument? Where did these guys go to law school anyway? Perhaps, they merely purchased their degrees as we're finding several top-level federal employees have done.
Stewart's lawyers will cite a 1995 decision that avoided jail time for a corporate executive because he was considered a crucial figure in his company, the Journal said, citing a person familiar with the matter.
Martha Stewart was forced to resign as an officer and board member of her company after she was convicted in March of lying to investigators about a personal stock sale.
