    I've always said that GameStop's prices were criminal; I guess I wasn't too far off.

    So he effectively steals ~$2 million and is fined only $250,000? What? Does he gets to keep the rest as long as he can live through his prison sentence? With a good enough lawyer, I'm willing to bet the sentence won't be close to 20 years. :wtf:

    they wouldnt let him keep embezzled money, im sure its already been revoked. That 250,000 will come from his actual wallet, which if he was funneling some money and lost it, id say this is gonna hit him pretty hard :P
    but you make an excellent point, a good lawyer could possibly lighten his sentance by a few years. But a good lawyer also costs some money as well...

    When you break the law and try and do it yeah, especially when you aren't even that well prepared to never get caught, yeah, it's stupid.

    Any smart white collar criminal knows to put his ill-gotten gains in an overseas account, where it will be harder for Government Officials to find it.
