I guess his faith didn’t help him, for according to New York’s Daily News, Dinesh D’Souza pleaded guilty to felony violations of campaign finance laws (he was originally charged with making false statements, but those charges were apparently dropped in the plea bargain).
The feds will dismiss the false statements count when D’Souza is sentenced on Sept. 23. The illegal contributions count carries a maximum sentence of two years in prison, but his plea deal calls for 10 to 16 months behind bars.
That certainly implies jail, but the News adds
D’Souza will likely seek a more lenient sentence but may be fined up to $250,000.
“I knew that causing a campaign contribution to be made in the name of another was wrong and something the law forbids,” D’Souza, wearing a black suit and colorful tie, said softly in court.
Poor Dinesh! I do not think he’ll do well in the pen.
