Uma Thurman - Kenneth Starr Jailed For More Than Seven Years Over Embezzlement

Celebrity accountant Kenneth Starr has been sentenced to more than seven years in jail for embezzling $30 million (£20 million) from clients including Uma Thurman, Martin Scorsese and Wesley Snipes.
Starr has been in jail since his arrest last May (10) and in September (10) he pleaded guilty to charges including wire fraud and money laundering.
On Wednesday (02Mar11), U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin ordered Starr to spend seven years and six months behind bars, according to the Associated Press.
He told the court, "I stand before you a contrite, humiliated and ashamed man. (I) strayed from the values I've been taught... I have no one to blame but myself."
As well as his jail sentence, Judge Scheindlin told Starr he would have to hand over $29 million (£19.3 million). However, prosecutors have voiced concerns that Starr does not have enough in assets to pay the bill.
