Black Sentenced to 6-1/2 Years

Conrad Black, the former CEO of Hollinger International accused of stealing millions of dollars from the corporation, was sentenced to 6-1/2 years in prison.  Some observers expected that he might be sentenced to 19-25 years.  Last summer a jury convicted him of three counts of mail fraud and one count of obstruction of justice; he was acquitted of nine other counts.  The judge reprimanded Black for not accepting his guilt.  CFO.com, Conrad Black Sentenced in Fraud Case.
