HP Spy Saga Continues

Last week, I complained about a low-level private investigator forced to plead guilty in the HP spy case. The state of California might let young Bryan Wagner off its Golden State hooks because the 29-year-old is already being punished (lightly it seems) by the feds.

Meanwhile, former chairwoman Patricia Dunn and three other alleged conspirators were offered what sounds like the deal of a lifetime. The feds will drop felony charges if they plead to a misdemeanor. So far, the defendants haven't taken the deal. As a longtime watcher of "Law & Order," I've got three words of advice: "Take the deal!"
