Michigan judge gets 1 year in jail

Disgraced ex-Michigan judge gets 1 year in jail: "Former Michigan Supreme Court Judge Diane Hathaway was sentenced to 12 months and one day behind bars Tuesday for bank fraud. Hathaway, who pleaded guilty in January to misleading her bank during a short sale of her Grosse Pointe, Mich., home, also is to pay $90,000 in restitution and will spend two years on probation. It is unclear where she will serve her sentence. Hathaway's defense lawyer, Steven Fishman, had asked Judge John Corbett O'Meara to spare Hathaway jail time prior to her sentencing in U.S. District Court's Eastern District in Ann Arbor."
