In a letter to the judge who will sentence him for his kidnapping and sexual assault conviction, former WWD media reporter and unsexyfakefireman Peter Braunstein asks for sympathy: "During the trial, the New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser declared that I was not sick; I was evil. This kind of tabloid rhetoric is essentially a mandate for harsh sentencing." Braunstein also suggested that Peyser's branding Paris Hilton an "ignorant slut" was "a little harsh." [NYP]
