    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    I'd love to see that happen, but it won't. If he goes at all, it will be "country club" jail like Martha. That's bullshit.

    Martha's situation was a bit different then this one, she was charged with insider trading of stocks worth I believe around a couple hundred thousand dollars. Ebbers was convicted of committing massive accounting fraud of about $11 billion dollars. While he probably will end up in the "country club" like Martha he certainly should be there for a much longer sentence.

    These bastards that steal money via 'white-collar' crimes need to get hit with sentences based on how much they stole. I think a minimum of 1 year per every million dollars should be imposed on these sentences.

    And the hell with country-club prisons, let them do hard time with the other lifers. If folks don't think that those 2 changes would deter a lot of white-collar crime, they're kidding themselves.

    Let those greedy bastards be somebody's bitch for a life sentence in a maximum security facility. I suppose the bleeding hearts would worry about the suicide rate for those with life sentences, but that's not a problem I'm concerned about.

    Martha would have more than likely received a slap on the wrist if she had not lied... they went after her because she lied to investigators (a no no)...
