He was convicted of fraud, larceny, and contempt of court. In other words: lying and deceiving the public, and defi-ance of the courts (disregarding fines, orders, and judgments). Well, the sentencing came down in March, and Trudeau made one last "pitch" to a one-man audience... U.S. District Judge Ronald Guzman.
Trudeau, being true to his character, was sounding remorseful and hyping up his own humility and contrition, all to no avail. That's because the judge wasn't buying any of it. Judge Guzman said that Trudeau was "deceitful to the very core". He was sentenced to 10 years in jail. It's easy to be sorry when you're caught and even easier to be sorry when you're convicted. But it's easiest to be sorry when you're being sentenced!
