Martha Stewart guilty?

That's the rumor, and they appear to have suspended trading in MSO. There aren't many details yet, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Meanwhile, can someone explain something to me? Why are so many people defending Ms Stewart on the (sophistic) grounds that it costs much more to prosecute her than the amount of illicit profit under consideration? How does that make any sense at all? I can guarantee you that if I go out and hold up a liquor store and make off with five Franklins, absolutely no one will argue that I shouldn't be prosecuted because the court costs would outweigh more than the money I stole.

UPDATE: Arrrggghh!! We have to wait until June for the sentencing!! Ah well, I can't complain. I think I'll go crack open a cold beer to celebrate.
