Et tu Mom?

You know things are going bad for you when your own mother requests that the judge throw the book at you.

From the Albany Times Union:
At the sentencing hearing Friday, Kilkenny's sister from New Jersey asked District Judge David N. Hurd to impose a harsh sentence. A representative of the Rensselaer County sheriff's union testified his organization was taken for $25,000.

Hurd said he received letters from Kilkenny's mother and mother-in-law asking for excessive punishment. The judge told victims in the courtroom their letters played a role in his decision.
