Martha Stewart Gets 5 Months in Prison
The 62-year-old former chief executive of lifestyle merchandising and publishing company Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. also gets two years of supervised probation after she is released.
"I'm not afraid," Stewart is reported to have said after the sentencing in New York. "I'll be back."
U.S. District Court Judge Miriam Goldman Cederbaum could have sentenced Stewart to 10 to 16 months in prison. Stewart won a stay to appeal her conviction, extending her freedom for a while longer. If her appeal fails, Stewart will serve time in a women's prison in Danbury, CT, which is near her home.
