Meanwhile, Ralsky apparently gets to keep most of the money

Yesterday, I wrote that spammer Alan Ralsky had pled guilty to a number of charges, and was facing roughly 3½ years in prison. The latest word comes from an FBI press release which indicates that Ralsky is also facing a $1 million fine.

However, Ralsky is said to have made $3 million on his various scams.

Hmm, let's see ... $3 million minus $1 million — carry the eleven — is wow, a whole lot of money. Not bad wages for 3½ years.

I'll leave it to my readers to draw their own conclusions about the U.S. justice system. I've already drawn mine.
