Judge Slaps Down Dinesh D’Souza’s Request For A ‘Summer Break’ From Community Service


A federal judge slammed Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza Tuesday for trying to take the summer off from his court-mandated community service.














D’Souza pleaded guilty last year to breaking federal campaign finance laws and was given a slap on the wrist due to a plea deal.

D’Souza was sentenced to eight months in a halfway house plus community service and weekly “therapeutic counseling.”

For some reason, the Conservative author’s parole officer included with his request the recent Vanity Fair article about D’Souza in which he feigns victimization.

The judge was not impressed.

“With respect to the Vanity Fair article, the court has no immediate reaction other than the article suggests several fertile areas of discussion during Mr. D’Souza’s required therapeutic counseling,” wrote Manhattan federal Judge Richard Berman.

The New York Post reports:

But when D’Souza — the maker of the anti-President Obama film “2016: Obama’s America” — tried to take a summer vacation from his sentence at the Mater Dei School, Manhattan federal Judge Richard Berman sarcastically rejected his request.

“With respect to [his parole officer’s ] request that Mr. D’Souza’s community service hours be ‘waived’ from June 1, 2015 until July 13, 2015, the request is respectfully denied,” Berman wrote.

The short explanation is, as all criminal defendants are aware, that we don’t provide ‘summer breaks’ in these circumstances.”

Berman also wrote that he is confident that the Catholic high school “is not the only appropriate venue for community service in San Diego” and asked D’Souza to find somewhere else to volunteer.

This isn’t the first time Berman has shot down one of D’Souza’s requests. In October the judge rejected the conservative filmmaker’s nervy request to delay reporting to the halfway house because his agenda was filled with “professional commitments.”

Somehow, this poor, persecuted soul will blame Obama for this, too. Wait for it.

In the Vanity Fair article, D’Souza claims he’s being persecuted for his beliefs, however, when he was in front of the same judge last year, he admitted that he knew his actions were not legal.

“Guilty your honor,” D’Souza said, adding that he deeply regrets his actions.

“The plea is now accepted and Mr. D’Souza is now guilty under the indictment,” Berman replied last year.
