He was convicted. He copped a plea. He paid a small fine to avoid harsher punishment. He got off virtually scot-free.

Perhaps a repeat this time is likely. The fullness of time will tell. He's criminally indicted. Clear evidence shows he committed bribery, embezzlement, money laundering, obstruction of justice, breach of trust, and perhaps more.
