Jury Convicts Conrad Black on Four Charges

bloom_nuncscio.jpg A Chicago jury unanimously found Conrad Black, Lord of Crossharbour, guilty of mail fraud and obstruction of justice. The last charge carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. This means ol' Conrad will almost certainly receive a jail sentence. After 20 years of appeals, of course.

Take note, you who think your wealth puts you above the law. Arrogance will not protect you.

Now, we need to figure out how to put Barbara Amiel, human wasteland par excellance, on the moon.

UPDATE: The UK Conservative Party will no longer allow Black to sit as a Tory in the House of Lords. Guess you shouldn't have pooched your Canadian citizenship, eh Conrad?
