D’Souza Is Spared Prison Time for Campaign Finance Violations

September 23, 2014, The New York Times

Covington partner Rob Kelner is quoted regarding conservative author and documentary filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza being spared prison time on Tuesday after pleading guilty earlier this year to violating federal campaign finance laws:

"When Mr. D’Souza entered his guilty plea, Judge Berman said he could face up to two years in prison. The federal sentencing guidelines call for 10 to 16 months, but the final decision is up to the judge’s discretion." 

“Judges are all over the map on these reimbursement cases,” said Robert Kelner, a campaign-finance lawyer at Covington & Burling.
