Today's discussion topic: is incarceration a good thing for certain high-profile defendants?

Jeralyn here at TalkLeft cover Paris Hilton's release from jail and comments that "Hilton looks none the worse for the wear of three weeks in jail.  As TMZ notes, she looks....refreshed."  Reflecting on how Martha Stewart and Chuck Colson and a few other high-profile defendants have prospered in various ways from being incarcerated, I am wondering if anyone has formally explored the notion that relatively short periods of incarceration may actually benefit certain types of high-profile defendants.  My guess is that Lewis Libby's lawyers are not working on this project.
