Stewart Slams Us Justice System For Making An Example Of Her

Lifestyle guru MARTHA STEWART has slammed the American justice system for unfairly imprisoning her to scare others from committing stock fraud.

The multimillionaire businesswoman was sentenced to five months in prison, five months in home confinement and two years under supervision by the probation office last July (04) for obstructing a federal securities investigation, by lying about her personal stock sale from her company Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc.

Stewart was released from a West Virginia federal prison in March (05) but she's still bitter about the punishment, because she believes she'd have received a lighter sentence if she was not in the public eye.

She says, "It was to scare other people. Of course that is what it's all about. Bring 'em down a notch, to scare other people. If Martha can be sent to jail, think hard before you sell that stock."
