There’s something satisfying in knowing that our favorite celebrities are human just like us, like seeing them get caught with a mouth full of food. But what about those celebs who’ve been caught doing worse things? Many celebrities — even well respected ones — have done questionable things that landed them in heaps of trouble. Here’s a list of 10 revered celebrities who have also committed some pretty awful crimes.
10. Martha Stewart
Even though she’s America’s most famous homemaker, Martha Stewart was not exempt from the law. In 2001, she received insider trading information that influenced her decision to sell her stock in ImClone systems. The following day, shares in ImClone fell, and led people to scrutinize her actions. In 2004, Stewart was found guilty of all charges brought against her: 2 counts of false statements, 1 count of conspiracy, and 1 count of obstruction of justice. At the age of 62, she served 5 months in a federal correctional institution and was also ordered to pay a fine of $30,000.
