    Does saying “Nearly 2 years!” sound a lot more dramatic than “23 months?” It must, the BDN seems to do that quite often. Hey, it’s only thirty days difference and we can handle the odd month, honest. =)

      The same as saying she was sentenced to 23 months and only going to be locked up for 30/45/60 or 90 days.The article never mentioned how long she will be behind locked doors and yes I realise it’s federal court.Just seems 23 months seems like allot compared to actual time that will be served.

        Yeah, noticed that too — all the papers try to stay away from how much time actually gets served on a sentence. Fact is, seems like none have the slightest idea and really don’t want to know once the big headline is over.

          In the federal system you do 85% of ur time minimum with no way of getting out sooner also feds sentence in months not years thats why it says 23 months and not 2 years……….

      This pill pushing dope fiend, part of a nationwide drug ring, was
      looking at 20 years, hard time !!
      She got off real easy ,in my humble opinion.

        Red, I don’t give her that much credit, this ain’t the Medellin Cartel. or Scarface. Just another skeezer trying for Cloud Nine and hit a brick wall.

          Agreed , scarface , she aint.
          I guess my question is why someone looking at 20 years plus
          gets less than 2.
          maybe she ratted the others out ?? leniency?

            Don’t do the time, drop a dime!
            Don’t be a lame, give a name!

            Not a shred of loyalty among dope fiends…

    Maybe she should have “reversed” her trading…
