Former member of the board of directors of Taser International, Mr. Bernie Kerik, has been offered a plea deal that, if accepted, would see him plead guilty to consolidated criminal charges and would serve about three years. [LINK]
Reports indicate that Mr. Kerik has not yet accepted the offer.
UPDATE: But he's reportedly thinking about it. He has to decide by Thursday (5 Nov. 2009). Wanna bet that he'll take the Guilty plea, and then later (much later, like 27 months later), complain about how he was actually innocent and was forced to plea bargain in spite of his "innocence"? Wanna bet? The court should make him personally and explicitly discuss the nature of his guilt, for the record, before accepting the plea. Such an approach might preclude future revisionist nonsense.
