Well, well well...The Conrad Black case DID get a little interesting after all.Loyal readers of this blog will no doubt recall that I recently questioned whether the trial had even come close to living up to all the hype surrounding it.
And while I still think the answer is a resounding "NO", these past few days have provided a fair share of drama - from jurors saying they were deadlocked earlier in the week to Conrad flipping the bird to the cameras.And it all came to a heated conclusion on Friday the 13th, which may now be forever known as Black Friday.Black now faces a maximum of 35 years in prison, based on the fact American courts have no problem stacking one sentence on top of another. In Canada, consecutive sentences are a rarity.
We'll have to wait until Nov. 30 to learn his fate. But that doesn't mean we can't all speculate.Click HERE
