Stewart Gets Five Months Behind Bars; Calls it "Shameful Day"

JULY 16, 2004 - Posted at 10:45 a.m. CDT

 

NEW YORK, NY - Martha Stewart says she's "not afraid" of what lies ahead, just "very, very sorry that it's come to this."

The lifestyle maven spoke outside federal court in New York after she was sentenced to five months in prison, five months of home confinement and fined $30,000 for lying about a stock sale.

Stewart called this a "shameful" day for her, her family and her company.  And she apologized to employees who lost their jobs.  But she said she "will be back."

She thanked her supporters and urged them to keep showing support by buying her products and subscribing to her magazine.

She said her legal troubles shouldn't have "any effect whatsoever" on her company.  Stock in Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia shot up nearly 30 percent after her sentencing.
