Khodorkovsky Gets 6 More Years in a Siberian Slammer

After days of reading the guilty verdict, a Russian judge has handed down a sentence in the latest Mikhail Khodorkovsky trial.

Moscow Judge Viktor Danilkin gave Kohodorkovsky the max, 6 more years. The former-billionaire has been in jail since 2003. His release date is now in the year 2017.

Many view the charges as payback by Putin for the anti-Putin political activities Khodorkovsky attempted before he was arrested.

Consider this a battle of Russian titans, with Putin mopping the floor and using Khodorkovsky as the mop.
