Conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza was sentenced to five years probation and a $30,000 fine today for violating campaign finance laws. For the first eight months of his probation, D'Souza will have to live in a "community confinement center" and undergo "therapeutic counseling." Basically, he has to go to rehab for being a bad person.
In May, D'Souza pleaded guilty to illegally arranging donations in the 2012 election. He maintains that he was unfairly targeted by prosecutors because he's a vocal critic of President Obama.
One interesting piece of information that surfaced during today's sentencing hearing is that D'Souza allegedly beat his soon-to-be ex-wife. Judge Richard Berman read a letter from Dixie D'Souza, who was married to Dinesh for 20 years, that stated:
In one instance, it was my husband who physically abused me in April 2012 when he, using his purple belt karate skills, kicked me in the head and shoulder, knocking me to the ground and creating injuries that pain me to this day.
Huh. Maybe one day he'll land in jail.
