"Today is a painful day for me," Stewart told the court before the judge announced the sentence.
Martha Stewart was sentenced to five months in prison and fined $30,000 Friday for lying to investigators about her sale of ImClone Systems stock in late 2001.
Federal Judge Miriam Cedarbaum also ordered that Stewart get five months of home confinement and two years of supervised probation after she is released .
But Stewart will not be heading to prison immediately since the judge issued a stay delaying the sentence while Stewart's lawyers file an expected appeal.
