Ok. so this guy probably made Millions and, with time off for good behaviour, will "maybe" have to sit for a year. THEN...he can go back and enjoy his Millions, whether it was from this scam or one of the many others this kind of guy is probably involved in.

"The potential max penalty for Rubin's crimes is 80 years in prison. But since he had some kind of agreement with the court, experts believe that he will get less than 2 years"- oh yeah that says it all! lets think for a sec here: he can get 80 years, but prob will get less than 2- hmmm 40 times smaller...just wonder what were this "some kind of agreement" and eventually it could turn out that less than 2 years ends up being 24h...

That must have been a good agreement. “I didn’t wanted to run from paying taxes, I just didn’t wanted my wife to knew from where was the money coming from…” I don’t know if he said something like this, but it sure must have been some very good excuse to reduce the prison sentence in more than 95%, I am just throwing some more fuel on the fire!
