I don't wish Martha ill, nor do I wish her fortune. It certainly is a defect of human nature to not admit fault, and had she been at least a bit contrite and admitted culpability, she would probably have escaped even the five months.

In the face of truly heinous crimes that go unpunished, and often even unheralded, hers is relatively trivial. But make no mistake - five months in jail is not trivial, especially to one used to the unlimited freedoms that accompany wealth and power. I recognize her courage in accepting what the court would throw at her.
