Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Are you guilty? The plea was "yes," but Catherine Pugh's gestures said "no"

Pugh pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and two counts of tax evasion, all stemming from what the government described as a criminal enterprise designed to profit from the sale of her "Healthy Holly" children's books.

Under the terms of the plea, Pugh did not acknowledge guilt in seven counts of wire fraud that were part of the indictment that U.S. Attorney Robert K. Hur announced yesterday.

Her convictions could theoretically bring her decades in prison, but the sentencing guidelines agreed to by both parties would allow Pugh to come away with something more like five years, Hur told reporters afterwards.

in exchange for what?
