At his sentencing, Herbie Sperling proved that he was the all-time
Sperling's lawyer made a lengthy, impassioned plea for his client.
He talked of mercy, justice, humanity to fellow men who have chosen the wrong
path. Yes, the crimes were serious, yes, Mr. Sperling deserves a prison
sentence, but the maximum sentence was not warranted.
Then the judge turned to Sperling. "Mr. Sperling, is there anything
you wish to say?"
"Yes, Your Honor. If you think I'm going to beg for mercy, you've
got another think coming. You're all a bunch of fucking fascist cocksuckers,
you can all go to hell, fuck you, fuck you, fuck you..."
