Must perform 100 hours of community service

Thursday, September 8, 2005; Posted: 5:16 p.m. EDT (21:16 GMT)


(CNN) -- Former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger was sentenced Thursday to community service and probation and fined $50,000 for illegally removing highly classified documents from the National Archives and intentionally destroying some of them.


Berger must perform 100 hours of community service and pay the fine as well as $6,905 for the administrative costs of his two-year probation, a district court judge ruled.

"I deeply regret the actions that I took at the National Archives two years ago, and I accept the judgment of the court," Berger said outside the courthouse after his sentencing.

"I'm glad that the 9/11 commission has made clear that it received all the documents that it sought, all the documents that it needed, and I'm pleased to finally have this matter resolved," he added.




I wonder if us "little people" would have received probation?

I think the whole thing reeks badly. To think that you can steal classified documents and not do one day in jail is B.S. So much for even trying to set some kind of precident for those who might want to try something similar in the future.

But I am realy not surprised by it.

Wow... 100 hours of community service... same punishment I got for stealing the lightbar off a cop car when I was a kid.  (I had it mounted to the wall in my bedroom... still donno who turned me in :frown:) Glad to know that national security and the lights on a cop car have the same value to the court system.

you probably didn't hold as much incriminating evidence
about the government as berger does, though.

The right hand washes the left hand, the left hand washes the right hand. The shrill public bickering is merely a well rehearsed distraction, the power elite wear the suits of any party that will serve their purposes. Why am I not surprised?
