Well he just hut a gutshot.
A judge with integrity is a 8-1 sort of thing, which is precisely why Feds do those sorts of things, because they know the large majority of judges will otherwise overlook it or accept it as standard practice (even though it isn't).

He was smart to leave ASAP. Whatever US based assets he has are probably toast but at least he's getting out with his neck.

His major US based asset was his plane which I'm sure he flew out on

Of all the places to book illegal bets, you be dumb enough to do in Vegas...The casinos have a lot of pull, and you arent getting away with it..

If this happened in New York or LA, he might not have been targeted so much.
