Why is Sandy Bergler STILL not in jail?

Recalling a question I had raised in an earlier post (see also here): "And why the hell isn't Sany Berger in Jail yet?" brought my attention to this item from the National Ledger.
"...government prosecutors have requested no jail time — just a $10,000 fine and the temporary removal of his security clearance."
Well, that clears that up, no? Sandy Berger admitted to stealing five "code-word" classified (more secret than top-secret) security documents from the National Archives. He admitted to destroying three of the five documents. He admitted that he lied to federal investigators by telling them initially that he merely removed the documents “by accident.” How much time did Martha Stewart do for lying to federal investigators? And her claim that she had had a stop-loss order with her broker, though found to be false, was not a deliberate attempt to weaken national security by altering the historical record of our government's reactions to terrorism, like Sandy's lying was clearly meant to do. Sandy gets a slap on the wrist, and government prosecutors throw the book at Martha Stewart? What a joke.

Although I think Martha should be shot for her crime and only because she is so annoying, I think the question you ask is right on.
