Kerri Dunn to get probation, write book, give lectures, appear on Oprah...

Former Claremont visiting professor Kerri Dunn has been convicted of insurance fraud charges. Dunn staged a phony hate crime by slashing her own tires and writing racist graffitti on her own car.

She won't be sentenced until Sept. 17, so the rest of the title is just speculation. But, I don't think the sentence is going to involve much prison time, if any.

There are reports on the testimony here and here, and previous coverage starts here.

12/15/04 UPDATE: Dunn's been sentenced to 1 year.
