Cecilia Grimes gets probation only
I would call this good news:
A lobbyist was sentenced to three years’ probation for destroying evidence about her ties to former Representative Curt Weldon, Republican of Pennsylvania, who is under investigation. The lobbyist, Cecelia Grimes of Parkesburg, Pa., apologized in court and said she would take back her actions if she could. Court documents say the authorities have been looking into whether Mr. Weldon, who lost his seat in 2006 and has not been charged with a crime, agreed to help Ms. Grimes by supporting appropriations requests from her lobbying firm. She is the second person linked to Mr. Weldon to plead guilty to a crime and cooperate with the government. His former top aide, Russell J. Caso Jr., pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge in 2007.
