Sen. Jane Orie Sentenced

/ 04.Jun, 2012
Former State Senator Jane Orie was sentenced today to a prisons sentence of 2 and 1/2 to 10 years on corruption charges.  Legal experts had been expecting a severe sentence because of Ms. Orie’s lack of apparent remorse and use of forgeries to attempt to discredit one of the witnesses against her in a previous trial, not to mention her position as a legislator, and previous experience as a prosecutor.  Ms. Orie’s sentence shows once again, as if Nixon wasn’t enough, that the cover-up is at least as likely to get you as an initial error. -Josh J.T.
