A Friendly Reminder That Martha Stewart was in Jail For 5 Months

It’s hard to believe it’s been 13 years since Martha Stewart was convicted of lying to investigators about why she sold ImClone stock in December 2001, just before the stock price plunged.  But here we are in 2017 and Stewart’s going strong in her career and it’s as if none of that ever even happened.  The conviction resulted in five months of a prison sentence, five months of house arrest, and a full two years of probation afterward.  Stewart maintained her innocence the entire time, but was finally confined to the Alderson Federal Prison Camp in West Virginia.

I felt it was important to remind everyone that Stewart committed a felony despite how awesome her partnership with Snoop Dogg is and despite how “innocent” her being Queen of home living seems to be.  I think it’s necessary to once in a while remind ourselves that the people we see on television are almost never their personalities on TV.   It’s kind of like when Michael Jackson was in the midst of all of his allegations of child abuse and molestation.  Here’s this larger than life performer that if you stop and actually think of what he was as a person behind closed doors was disturbing and horrifying.

There’s really no reason I want to bring this up, just that it should be brought up from time to time.  Martha Stewart actually spent five months in jail and I just think it’s interesting.
