They got Martha Stewart. Why is Webber still out there? Don't they have the same type of case?

Martha was charged for 4 felony counts. Webber was charged for 1 misdemeanor

The distinction I've heard made is that CWebb lied to a grand jury, and (I think) Martha lied to federal investigators. In my opinion both are victims (to some degree) of their own fame...neither would have been prosecuted to the same extent if they weren't garnering headlines. And, in light of economic troubles in the states with regard to problems with big companies lying (enron, worldcom, etc.), Martha actually stepped into a furnace hotter than CWebb, so she got taken to task a bit more.
