Down for the count….

With thanks to Ed Mecka, here’s the indictment:

Reader FAP, a stable favorite posted the following:

To summarize the charges are:
Count One: Conspiracy – First Degree
Count Two: Official Misconduct – Second Degree
Count Three: Theft by Unlawful Taking or Disposition – Second Degree
Count Four: Misapplication of Property and Property of Government – Second Degree
Count Five: Financial Facilitation of Criminal Activity – First Degree

To put this in perspective:
“First-degree crimes carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in state prison and a $200,000 fine, while second-degree crimes carry a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $150,000 fine. The first-degree money laundering charges carry a period of parole ineligibility equal to one-third to one-half of the prison sentence imposed and a fine of up to $500,000.”

This means that with the five counts John is looking at 70 Years in prison and a $850,000 fine. 
No matter how you slice it, it means trouble and major prison time.
