Forbes: Martha Stewart Found Guilty
Martha Stewart, the domestic diva and founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, was found guilty in her obstruction of justice trial today. Her co-defendant and stockbroker Peter Bacanovic was also found guilty on four counts out of five.
Federal sentencing experts predict that Stewart most likely will receive a sentence of slightly less than one year, with about half of that time to be served in prison and the balance in a halfway house, home detention or on parole.
