A 22-year-old was recently sentenced to two years in prison for lying to agents, just like Petraeus



Fort Mill Woman Sentenced to 24 Months Imprisonment for Lying to Federal Agents
U.S. Attorney’s Office
December 15, 2014

COLUMBIA, SC—United States Attorney Bill Nettles stated today that Kirstie Elaine Philome Barratt, age 22, of Fort Mill, South Carolina was sentenced to 24 months’ imprisonment today after earlier pleading guilty to making a false statement to a federal agent, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001. United States District Judge Joseph F. Anderson, Jr. imposed the term of imprisonment, which will be followed by a 3 year term of supervised release. In October, Barratt plead straight up to the charge without a plea agreement. Barratt also may face deportation as a result of her guilty plea. During the sentencing hearing, Judge Anderson granted the government’s motion for an upward departure from the federal guidelines sentencing range of 0 to 6 months, noting that this was a “rare” case and that Barratt “knowingly placed a law enforcement officer’s life in jeopardy” by her false statement.

2. absolutely wrong kpete!

David Petraeus is a true American hero who single handedly saved Iraq. Or so the Fox/GOP myth goes. Amazing he could get anything at all done given how much adultery he committed while posing as the great American hero.

4. The 'knowingly placed' an officer's 'life in jeopardy' in her case undoubtedly played a role.

The justice system is sensitive on that issue.
