2 years for Tim Russell

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Tim Russell was sentenced today to two years in prison and five years of probation. His lawyer's request to delay the beginning of the prison term was denied, and he was remanded to custody of the court. I continue to wonder how the right-wing folks in the state can continue to insist there's nothing to see here, as those closest to the Governor continue to be sentenced.

According to Madison.com -

Judge David Hansher scolded Russell, 49, saying he did not believe the former Walker deputy chief of staff was contrite for his actions. His sentence exceeded that requested by Assistant District Attorney Bruce Landgraf, who had asked for two years in prison and two years of probation.

"There is absolutely no true regret, remorse or repentance," Hansher said. " I find that you don't even have any shame."
