Disclosure....I worked with Mark in the court system in the 90s. I was shocked that he did this.

He will do no jail time. He can't. He'll be tortured or killed in prison. He's put too many people away. Going to jail and putting his life in jeopardy is too high a price for the crime committed.

As a first offender he should get a suspended sentence with full restitution to be paid up front

As a first time offender he should be treated fairly by the courts, full restitution up front, loss of law license, 5 years probation, community service to include speaking to students about the dangers of problem gambling, etc

A lot of people have a lot of negative things to say about this guy without even knowing all of the facts, let alone knowing who this man really is. I'm sure you are all perfect, especially Bptborn. There are good and bad people everywhere and plenty of good people who make bad mistakes. He should be treated fairly and pay the appropriate penalty for his crime. All factors should be considered, not just the fact that he was a prosecutor. If you want to hang him, then hang everyone accused of a crime, including the people you all know and love that may make a mistake.

interesting perspective.

so this 'poor' unfortunate man with a 'problem' apparently gamed the system further because he knew he couldn't go to jail because of the personal danger he would face.

seems like that makes his behavior even more calculated. and what if a judge doesn't agree and sends him to jail anyway. the ironies of a corrupt prosecutor boggle even the most jaded mind.

full restitution and a stiff fine. it's nice that someone gave him a job, but when word gets around he probably won't be selling many cars. he's going to be digging his way out of this hole a real long time.

I'm not speculating if he thought he wouldn't go to jail or not.

But the reality is that cops and prosecutors face a higher risk of injury or death in prison than any other inmate. Since stealing money doesn't rate the death penalty in this country I don't see Mark going to jail for this. Especially as a first offender.

Danbury is a federal minimum security facility. Since this is a state crime he wouldn't be eligible for Danbury.

Danbury or Pennsylvania Federal Correction (Camp) will be the incarceration location. The Feds and State do it all the time when judicial system employees get time. State figures its cheaper to pay the feds than to have to deal with almost certain admininstrative segregation for inmates with risk factors. Sentence will be 36-60 months followed by 6 months supervised home release and 5 years probation. No post-sentence work involving money etc. Sentence Mitigation criteria: restitution and acceptance of responsibility. Sentence Enhancement factors: defrauding public community and position of trust. Overall score: 20-30% higher sentence than man on the street. Good luck - Ed G's done a good job of forum selection.

Mark is a good man who just made a big mistake..Havent we all at 1 time? He's making restitution and has been completely co-operative with the state..I know this gentleman and he truly is a good man who made a mistake and got caught up in things that made him make some bad decisions. He's regretful and wants to make things right and get on with his life.give him a break! Best of luck to you Mark, You'll come out ok!

Mark Hurley will lose his law license and has paid back the money. He has a young family. Enough is enough. The man does not belong in jail. He will be a target for all of the people that he has prosecuted through the years. I say a long suspended sentence and hopefully the Bar Association only disbars him for 5 years. He is a good man. HE DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE
