  •  I'm not sure someone like her (5+ / 0-)

    is going to be willing to spend a long time in prison. She's probably gone along with all this assuming Murdoch was going to buy their way out of this mess through all his connections and/or threats of outing whoever is in his pocket.

    Hopefully they will be going for a really stiff sentence in order to persuade her to cooperate in order to reduce it. Barring that, I hope she rots in prison.

      media reports suggesting it), that she has been paid pretty well to date - including her severance.

      So if she already has millions in the bank and the sentence will prevent her from spending it for a decade or two, what's another bunch of millions going to mean to her if he gets a get out of jail card and maybe immunity for the other stuff she may have done?

      Maybe it's a civil question as to whether she can be held personally liable for any of this stuff such that it would clean her out. At that point, if going to jail saves her bucks by keeping her mouth shut, maybe jail doesn't look as bad depending on the length of sentence.
