Prosecutors’ recommendation: 9 years in prison
Probation recommendation: 6.5 years in prison
Carona’s olive-branch offering: 15 to 21 months in prison
Carona’s wish: Probation (such as home detention)

I’m sensing the Judge is not going with probation.

“I believe the Bureau of Prisons will protect Mr. Carona,’’ judge says. “Just as Carona protected inmates under his care.”

That’s five years and six months.

Carona has the same stoic expression. His wife, sitting in the front row, looks very sad.

Carona also gets two years of probation afterwards.
