White Plains, NY - Bernard Kerik [a former member of the Board of Directors of Taser International] said ('in a low but firm voice' [LINK]) "guilty" eight times as he admitted to eight felonies - which included lying about taxes, hiding income from the IRS, and faking a monetary contribution to a charity. Prosecutors suggested that Kerik be put behind bars for up to 33 months. The judge said the maximum sentence is 61 years. In addition to serving time in prison, Kerik may also be fined. He has already agreed to pay nearly $188,000 in restitution and to resubmit his personal tax returns for six years, paying past-due taxes and penalties.
Opinion: A sentence of a year or two should be sufficient. With good behavior, he might be out in under a year. And that's fine. I believe it's safe to conclude that his hubris has been surgically removed at this point. He just needs some quiet time to recover.
