You almost have to hand it to Dinesh D’Souza, the man has chutzpah. After publicly declaring how thrilled he was with his sentence, which contained no prison time, he then asked the judge to delay the eight months he was to stay in a halfway house so he could promote his new movie. The judge was not amused.
A federal judge who spared Dinesh D’Souza prison time for illegal-campaign contributions shot down the conservative filmmaker’s nervy request to push back reporting to a halfway house until after January because his agenda was filled with “professional commitments.”“Application respectfully denied. The court is, in fact, surprised that its 9/23/14 sentence is not already in effect,” Manhattan federal Judge Richard Berman wrote D’Souza’s lawyer Benjamin Brafman Wednesday.
Brafman in a letter thanked the judge for sparing D’Souza prison but claimed his “very creative sentence” puts his client, a well known public speaker, in “conflict” with professional commitments, including being “contractually committed to a number of universities and not-for-profits over the next few months.”
Awww. You mean the crimes he intentionally committed are now disrupting his life a bit? How terrible for him.
