Hsu Goes to Jail

Norman Hsu’s original three-year sentence for fraud was affirmed today by a California superior court judge. His amusing attempt at having the conviction thrown out was to claim that his right to a speedy trial was violated when authorities failed to apprehend him in a timely fashion after he jumped bail.

Federal authorities are bringing a new case against him for mail fraud, wire fraud, and violating the Federal Election Campaign Act in New York. He also can look forward to more scrutiny as his money-gathering activities on behalf of the Democrats get more attention.
