No jail time for Pat Whelan and William McAteer

I wondered in my last post about the criminal convictions for Pat Whelan and William McAteer "if we will finally see someone behind bars for the criminal activities of this rogue bank".

The answer, at least for now, is no.

The judge has decided that it would be “incredibly unjust” for the two men to spend time in prison.

I see no mention of hefty fines either.

All I can see is that the judge will decide at the end of this month on whether or not community service would be appropriate.

So I don't really know what to say. Sean Fitzpatrick was found not guilty, these two men are guilty but not going to jail, David Drumm continues to hide out in the United States.

Justice is not being served.
