Sports editor in slammer for scamming employer
A seemingly sorry tale of someone who saw an opportunity to scam their employer - The People newspaper - by pretending that they were paying lots of contributors while lining their own coffers. Though it appears that in this case - apart from paying for a better eductation for their daughter - they were sharing the spoils for the greater good.
While the judge seemed sympathetic to their actions they were nevertheless totally illegal - so time out in the slammer.
