MARTHA'S GUILTY

After deliberating for three days, a jury pronounced Martha Stewart guilty of all charges Friday in New York City. The 62-year-old domestic guru — who suspiciously dumped her ImClone stock the day before it tanked in 2001 — appeared to grimace as each of the four counts against her was read in court. Her former stockbroker, Peter Bacanovic, also was found guilty on all charges, except for filing a false document. Will Martha do time? Her charges carry up to 20 years in prison, but experts say she'll likely get a far lesser penalty. We won't find out until sentencing day, which is set for June 17.
