Martha Stewart's new jail cell
June 8, 2003 11:25 PM   Subscribe

Martha Stewart's got a new project on her hands: redecorating her jail cell. With a little lace, some scented contraband and a lot of time, cell ML-122 will be fit for the matriarch of homemaking in no time. Check out this gallery of the latest Spring jail cell designs, courtesy of the photoshop pholks at Worth1000.

I would just like to say that Martha Stewart has not been proven guilty of these crimes, only indicted on charges of conspiracy, securities fraud and obstruction of justice. I don't really like her, or the conspicuous consumption she pushes, but lets get facts straight. We still have a system of innocent before being proved guilty.

Yes, with the caveat popular opinion and judicial process are not equally protected courts.

plemeljr, I definitely agree, but I have to say I got a belly laugh out of the ersatz Martha Stewart Living cover.

Leona Helmsley did time for tax evasion.

Dunno if the next two qualify in the "rich" department, but they're in a higher-bracket crowd than I am by a fair bit: "Mayflower Madam" Sydney Biddle Barrows and "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss both were busted for pandering.

I think it was back around the time the rich latina woman and rich African American woman went to jail.

How much time is Ken Lay serving again? And Martha Stewart is such big news because, what, she has a wholesome image? I like how irony now determines our judicial priorities.
