Martha Stewart

Being accused of corporate fraud is not a good thing.  Martha Stewart learned that the hard way after being found guilty of conspiracy, obstruction of an agency proceeding, and making false statements of federal investigators in March 2004.  She was sentenced to 5 months in prison, and then placed in a two-year term of supervised release.  Ever the entrepreneur, Martha made the most of her time behind bars.  While in jail Martha had a job, and became an informal liaison between the administration and her fellow inmates, earning the nickname, “M. Diddy.”
