Rizler sentencing documents released

This just in from SpamSuite: Christopher Smith, aka Rizler was sentenced to 30 years last thursday, according to the Mineapolis Star Tribune. Today, the actual sentencing document went online at SpamSuite.

The 30 year sentence turns out to be the longest of several different sentences which will be served concurrently. The grand total for all charges came to 74 years. The two big sentences were 20 years for money laundering and 30 years for "Continuing Criminal Enterprise". The online drug-dealing sentences were five years each. He'll be at the maximum security prison in Terre Haute, Indiana.

Forfeitures came to over $24 million.

I don't believe he's yet gone on trial for trying to have a witness killed. That should be interesting.
