STEWART MAY SERVE JAIL TIME WHILE APPEALING, LAWYER SAYS

Martha Stewart is thinking about voluntarily starting her five-month prison sentence while still appealing her conviction, her lawyer said today.

Stewart, who resigned as CEO of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia but still holds the title of founding editorial director, is "willing to think about this because of the company," lawyer Walter Dellinger said on ABC's "Good Morning America."

Stewart was convicted of lying to investigators about her sale of ImClone Systems Inc. stock in late 2001. She was sentenced in July 16 to five months in prison and five months of home detention, but won a stay of sentence while appealing her conviction.
