    I think even 11 days would be horrible for most people....

    Because most people don't commit crimes.
    Crime = Time

    11 days and whatever fine was indicated are nothing to her.
    OTOH, the humiliation to her and her family is ample compensation, I would think.

    I certainly hope so. Hopefully she posts them on Instagram.

    There might have been something in between?
    60 days in county jail is pretty significant.
    But then again it was 'just' fraud, and there are plenty of Wall St. types who get no jail time for it.

    By Joshua Miller Globe Staff
    NEEDHAM — It was a modest house by this town’s standards, a center-entrance colonial, three bedrooms and a two-car garage on a quarter-acre lot. The inside hadn’t welcomed a renovator in many, many years, and the outside didn’t wear its age particularly well.

    Its owner: Peter Brand, Harvard University’s legendary fencing coach. Its assessed value: $549,300.

    So when the house sold to a wealthy Maryland businessman for close to a million dollars in May 2016, the town’s top assessor was so dumbfounded that he wrote the following in his notes: “Makes no sense.”

    Now it might.


    The buyer, it turns out, was the father of a high school junior who was actively looking at applying to Harvard with an eye toward being on the fencing team.

    Soon enough, Jie Zhao’s younger son would gain admission and join the team. And Zhao, who never lived a day in the Needham house, would sell it 17 months after he bought it for a $324,500 loss.

    On 60 Minutes, Lori Loughlin’s vacuous daughter made a vacuous statement during her vacuous return to her vacuous influencer YouTube show, glad to be back with her vacuous influencees who no doubt are vacuously thrilled.
