Martha Stewart is Out of Jail

Martha Stewart was released from prison and now faces 5 months of home confinement.  Why are so many newspapers making her a  "front-pager" this a.m.? See here (Atlanta Jrl Const.), here (New York Times), here (LA Times), here (USA Today), here (Washington Post).  And even those that didn't make her a top story had notes on the front page with a jump to the article.  See here (Detroit Free Press). When it comes to general deterrence, who won this round of the case?
