The Academic Blogger: Part II

I mentioned the case of the Blogger, who impersonated my father and this past week the jury gave its verdict. The blogger was charged with several counts of identity theft/impersonation/harassment. The sentencing will be next month and he faces 1 1/3rd to 4 years in prison.
Since I have the inside scoop, I just want to mention that my father, Professor Lawrence Schiffman, victim of the impersonation, honestly told me several times that he did not want to see Mr. Golb go to jail. Sending a lawyer/academic /blogger to jail is not his idea of retribution.
Here is the Yahoo! News Article.
Once again, comments and thoughts welcome.
