I'm sure everyone remembers Lou Pearlman. You know he is the fat guy who started a bunch of boy band groups and was the alleged ringleader of the United States' biggest Ponzi scheme. Lou allegedly pocketed about $500M in the scheme.
Well now, Fat Boy Lou is making a deal with the federal government. Fat Boy if you will recall was arrested in Indonesia where he was no doubt discovering fresh new boys to begin a new label there. Although nothing was ever proved about Fat Boy's love of fresh boys, there were accusations made. Well Fat Boy was supposed to have a trial that started later this week on federal charges. In fact, Fat Boy wanted a trial. More than that, Fat Boy told reporters when he was arrested that he couldn't wait to get out on bond so he could help locate the real thieves. Just like that whole real killer thing. Maybe that is why Fat Boy was hiding in Indonesia. He was looking at young boys to see if any of them took the money.
Now, Fat Boy has changed his tune and is going to plead guilty in exchange for helping the government find some of the money that he stole. Some? No jail sentence has been agreed upon, but I promise you that whatever he gets, and he might not get any jail time will pale in comparison to what a guy gets for stealing food to feed his family.
In this country, the more you steal, the less time you have to serve, which is just basically another way of saying if you are poor you get screwed as many times as possible.
