A federal judge in New York sentenced a Florida woman who pleaded guilty to a scheme of selling the stolen diary of President Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley to a month in prison on Tuesday.

Aimee Harris, a 41-year-old mother of two children, displayed “despicable and consequently very serious” conduct, said Judge Laura Taylor Swain, according to The New York Times.

Swain sentenced Harris to one month behind bars — a term she is expected to begin in July — as well as three years of probation and three months home confinement. Harris was also reportedly ordered to give back the $20,000 she earned from selling the diary.

The Department of Justice said Harris teamed up with a man named Robert Kurlander to sell the property to an organization, which has been identified as Project Veritas, for $40,000 after finding a journal and other items belonging to Ashley Biden in a private residence in Florida in the weeks before the 2020 election.

The duo previously tried to sell the materials to former President Donald Trump’s campaign, but were rebuffed and encouraged to give them to the FBI, per court papers reported by NBC News.

Harris and Kurlander pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property back in December of 2022. Both offered apologies for their actions at the time.


But court filings show numerous delays followed, with Harris citing issues such as health problems and having no child care, leading prosecutors to seek a harsher sentence. U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said Harris “abused the administration of justice throughout the pendency of this court proceeding.”

Bloomberg News reported that Project Veritas did not publish the contents from Ashley Biden’s diary, but the group is facing a federal investigation into the matter and FBI raids. A Project Veritas spokesperson has said the group’s “news gathering was ethical and legal.”

Alleged pages from the first daughter’s diary got published by National File, which claimed they came from a Project Veritas whistleblower.

This has been a much scrutinized case because the diary contains salacious yet unverified claims about President Biden. Some of the response to the sentencing, particularly from the Right, has been condemnatory.

Kurlander, who is 60, has not yet been sentenced.

As noted by The New York Times, Kurlander has cooperated with the federal investigation and prosecutors requested a six-month delay on Friday.

The news outlet also reported that Ashley Biden provided a statement to the court that described what happened to her as “one of the most heinous forms of bullying.”
