"Bridgegate" Defendants Sentenced to Prison

Bill Baroni and Bridget Anne Kelly, former aides to New Jersey governor Chris Christie, were convicted in federal court in November of charges stemming from the politically punitive closure of the George Washington Bridge. They were sentenced yesterday. Baroni received 24 months in prison, Kelly 18 months. The sentences, for first offenders, for one criminal incident, are unjust, outrageously harsh.
