"This may be the worst day of my life."

That was Ken Jenne after his pleaded guilty today in federal court.

From the Sun-Sentinel:

Sentencing for Jenne was set for Nov. 16 before U.S. District Court Judge William P. Dimitrouleas at the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale. Until then, he remains free on $100,000 bond.

Sentencing guidelines in Jenne's plea agreement call for a prison term of 18-24 months, but prosecutors could ask for more, and Jenne's defense could ask for less.``If I give you a higher sentence, that's a chance you take. You understand that, don't you?'' Dimitrouleas asked.``Yes, your honor,'' Jenne replied.

This passage struck me:

Ever the politician, Jenne, 60, chatted amiably with the chief prosecutor, Michael "Pat" Sullivan, minutes before his morning court appearance."Good seeing you," Jenne told Sullivan, patting him on the arm. Jenne appeared stoic, dressed in a navy blue pinstripe suit.
