...at least for those who have plenty of money and access to unscrupulous lawyers.
I'm willing to bet that if Average Joe Citizen committed that sort of crime, they'd be hauled from the courtroom right into the prison bus.
But his lawyer is probably wrong on the USSC taking this appeal. Nacchio has had his last appeal in this case - I hope he enjoys prison.

His problems began after Qwest refused illegal wiretaps
Is it merely a co-incidence that Nacchio's problems began shortly after Quest refused to implement Bush's illegal warrant-less wiretaps?

Actually I do not think Nacchio's "persecution" as a prosecution was a coincidence. Consider what happened to Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman by Bushes dishonest prosecutors. and then there is the matter of New York Governor Eliot Spitzer a Democrat, persecution because of Republican snooping. Who cares who he is having a relationship with as long as he is doing his job.
All of the other telecommunication companies kissed King Bushes Butt and did whatever King Bush demanded even if it violated the Constitution. Hopefully Bush will be brought before the Hague Convention and be prosecuted for war crimes.

If it was a coincedence it would be very out of character for them.
ya, it sort of is a coincidence.
Sorry, I'm against the wiretaps, But that just sounds like nothing but a conspiracy theory to me.
If it were true, then why was HE the only one to get put through the justice system.
just my opinion, Nacchio's arrest had nothing to do with wiretaps, (or at least that I know of)
It's just as much a coincidence as Bush's DOJ firing ONLY SPECIFIC attorneys who wouldn't launch frivolous cases against (D) politicians at the request of Karl Rove.
It's a coincidence just like how "The" Dick (Cheney) went on Meet The Press and others like Rumsfeld went on other Sunday morning talk shows... the same day as the false aluminum tubes story about Iraq was printed in the New York Times. They then referred to the story (that they themselves had "leaked") to back up their (now proven) false claims of an Iraq nuclear program.
I'm not even saying that Nacchio isn't guilty -- I haven't seen the case; I don't know. But I highly doubt that the prosecution was motivated by a Bush admin desire to crack down on white collar crime because they loved white collar crime.
We're talking about what is demonstrably one of the most vindictive administrations in U.S. history and you think the prosecution of someone who wouldn't participate in their Journalist Surveillance Program is just a coincidence? Can I interest you in an Amway business opportunity??

Its not really long enough. How many people would spend 6 yrs in a fed prison(resort) for a few 100 mil? Trade off is pretty good. I dont think many of us will make that kind of money in 6 years.
How will they ever get the fines from him he has no money left in his name.
Not that I feel sorry for him- quite the opposite.
