2004: Lifestyle maven Martha Stewart is found guilty of conspiracy, making false statements to federal investigators and obstruction of justice in connection with the December 2001 sale of her stock in ImClone Systems. She would later be sentenced to five months in prison and five months of home confinement. Stewart had sold all 3,928 shares of her stock in the company after receiving insider information from her stock broker. The day following her sale, the stock value fell 16 percent, which would have meant a $45,673 loss for Stewart.
