3 + Years for a Former New Jersey Politician

If you think that white collar sentences are going down in a post-Booker world, you need only check out the sentence given to John A. Lynch Jr. yesterday.  He received a sentence of three years and three months for guilty pleas to fraud and tax evasion.  The 39 month sentence was on the high end of the guideline range of 33 to 41 months. Well known in political circles, Lynch is a former state Senate President. (see Newsday AP here for more details)
