Bernard Kerik sentenced to four years in prison

Associated Press
Former New York City police commissioner Bernard Kerik, who was hailed as a hero after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks and nearly became chief of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, was sentenced to four years behind bars Thursday for eight felonies.

Kerik admitted in November that he lied to the White House, filed false taxes and committed other crimes.

"The fact that Mr. Kerik would use that event (9/11) for personal gain and aggrandizement is a dark place in the soul for me," said federal Judge Stephen Robinson.

An apologetic Kerik said before the sentence was pronounced: "Allow me to return to my wife and two little girls as soon as possible." Federal guidelines indicated Kerik's sentence should be between 27 and 33 months in prison. Robinson said he went beyond the guidelines because they could not account for certain factors.

Kerik was "the chief law enforcement law enforcement officer for the biggest and grandest city this nation has," Robinson said. The crimes were committed "in the process of attempting to become a cabinet level position in the government of the United States."

Kerik, 54, has already been ordered to pay $188,000 in restitution and to pay past-due taxes and penalties on six years of tax returns.[/quote]Another gov't crook bites the dust, one can only wonder how much he abused the position that Bush appointed him to as well

What are the convicts gonna say when they see Tom Delay?: Allright stop, Hammer Time!

If Delay is confused with the play on words with his famous nickname, he can just look it up:

Definitions 1 and 3 will apply in prison

Re: Kerik sentenced to four years in prison
3 to 4 years is too much? I don't know, I kinda feel you got to bring the hammer down on people who betray the public trust and use their authority to their own benefits. How else are you going to discourage corruption if you don't send these guys to prison? Get rid of government all together?

The indictment also charged that Kerik made several false statements to the White House (in his background information statement regarding his Department of Homeland Security appointment) and other federal officials.[/quote][quote]Grand Jury indicted Tom DeLay on a felony conspiracy charge to move $190,000 in corporate donations to Republican candidates in the Texas State Legislat[/quote]
No mercy! I hope they both have a lovely time in prison.

Well actually Firstdown he may very well end up in main population in prison... the only thing is he is going to be at a low level security Federal Prison that probably has its on golf course. he isnt going to be pulling any real hard time like in a maximum security facility. haha Im sure you've heard the phrase "Club Fed" hell Federal Prisons even allow conjugal visits so 4 yrs isnt going to be all that hard on him.
