Disgraced banker's wife stands by her man

Marriage

'We all make mistakes'.

She stood by her man — and it saved the disgraced ex-Wall Street investment banker from serving significant jail time.

The New York Post reports that Frank 'Perk' Hixon Jr. admitted to insider trading to help support his love child — but he caught a huge break during his sentencing Friday when his scorned socialite wife begged a Manhattan federal judge to show her cheating hubby some leniency.

'When Perk told me the story of the child who is my step-daughter . . . I felt shocked, anger, grief', Marguerite Lammot Lee said. 'There was an obvious path open to me: Walk away. But it was clear, and it was clear to both of us, that we wanted to be together; we wanted to go forward together.

'We all make mistakes', she added. 'Some of us very big ones. But the measure of a man is what he does next; and Perk has worked hard to atone for those actions and to counter their burden on those most affected by them'.
