Ex-Rep. Jefferson Sentencing Delayed until Nov. 13; Documents Show He Took the 5th at One Point

No matter the date, Jefferson is likely to get whacked at sentencing. Though the conviction was overwhelming — guilty on 11 of 16 counts — he’s not likely to show much remorse at sentencing because of his plan to appeal the conviction. He may either tell the judge he did some foolish things, but he’s not guilty of the charges he was convicted of. Or, he’ll just pass on making any statement in court. Either way, it’s not likely to impress the judge.

Jefferson originally was scheduled for sentencing Oct. 30 after being found guilty by a Virginia jury on 11 of 16 corruption charges.

The ruling had been sealed at Jefferson’s request because its release would have disclosed that he had invoked his 5th Amendment protection against self incrimination in trying to keep the documents out of the hands of investigators.
