Video: Prosecutor: Rubashkin “Deserves” His 27-Year Sentence; Cook: The Battle Has Just Started

guy-cook [Video below.] Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin deserves the prison time he received Tuesday in federal court, prosecutors said after Judge Linda Reade sentenced him to 27 years.

Bob Teig, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office, said the case “cries out for a sentence like this.”

“It is a lengthy sentence,” Teig said. “But he earned a lengthy sentence. It’s hard to get a 27-year sentence for a white-collar crime. It is very difficult.”

Defense lawyers have vowed to appeal, and railed against the sentence in a press conference with at least 100 supporters yesterday

“While this may appear to be the end of the case, it is not,” defense lawyer Guy Cook said. “It is indeed the beginning of the case. It’s round one, if you will.”

Bob Barr, a former Georgia congressman who joined Rubashkin’s legal team for the appeal, said the sentence was “unjust, unnecessary, and unreasonable.” He held up a copy of Reade’s ruling and said, “This will not stand.”
