US Attorney Recommends Nearly 5-Year Sentence For Catherine Pugh In ‘Healthy Holly’ Scandal

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — U.S. Attorney Robert Hur is recommending a nearly five-year prison sentence for former Baltimore mayor Catherine Pugh in the “Healthy Holly” scandal.

In documents filed with the court, Hur called Pugh’s actions in the scheme “a recurring pattern of well-executed steps that built on each other, becoming more audacious and complex leading up to the mayoral election.”

The former mayor pleaded guilty in November to four charges, including conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government and two counts of tax evasion.

“The facts establish that Pugh deliberately engaged in a broad range of criminal acts while serving as Maryland State Senator and Mayor of Baltimore City,” Hur said. more

  1. Nearly 5 years. Good, then give her 4 years 11 months 29 days so she’ll have to serve every minute & not get out in 6 months for good behavior.

  2. She is in Federal court and pled guilty to the judge.
    If she goes to a federal prison the feds don’t offer
    parole until the sentence is nearly complete.
    She has been doing this criminal crap since she was on
    the City council years ago.
    I will be surprised if the Dem political machine doesn’t have some background deal going so it will look like she
    is getting slammed but will quietly be out on the street within a year or two.

  3. I read an article in the Baltimore Sun a few days ago that said her attorneys were asking for one year and one day. “’Ms. Pugh has become a tragic figure — an inspiring person dedicated to helping her community who is now a disgraced, unemployed felon, and who has lost everything that she had,’ her attorneys wrote in a sentencing memorandum Friday.”

    Cry me a river.

  4. The Judge is Deborah K. Chasanow, a Bill Clinton appointee so don’t expect Ms. Pugh to spend a lot of time in the can.
