< 80. | Alexandria

truthfulness of what he was saying, it seems apparent from what Mr. Small has just said that that eye is still blind, and even the experience of sitting through this trial and seeing what he saw, hearing what he heard about the true finances of this organization, hasn't made him open that eye. And perhaps the sentence of this Court will. Thank you.
THE COURT: The defendant come forward.
The nicest thing that can be said about some of these solicitors is that they have deluded themselves into thinking that their lofty aims justified the means by which they raised money. And they still apparently feel that way.
It will be the sentence of the Court on each of the four counts on which he was found guilty, I, III, VIII, and X, the defendant be committed to the custody of the Attorney General or his authorized representative for imprisonment for a term of three years, and that he pay a fine of $2000, plus the $50 assessment. The terms of imprisonment will be made to run concurrently.
I will not permit voluntary surrender. I will not impose the sentence under B-2. Nor am I willing to recommend a level one place of incarceration. I do not find that the issues raised on appeal raise substantial questions of law or fact which would result in either a new trial or a reversal. For these reasons, bond pending appeal is denied. Defendant is remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal.
