Hmm. He's going to get five years in the PMITA prison for less than a $4 million fraud....

....and not a single goddamn banker in this country has even been indicted.

Hmm. He's going to get five years in the PMITA prison for less than a $4 million fraud........and not a single goddamn banker in this country has even been indicted.

Well, there's this guy (csb: Knew him well when he was a small-town Florida Keys banker. End csb). Original indictment, he was facing 200-plus years. This is the result of his plea:

In 2006, American Banker magazine named Jerry Williams one of its Community Bankers of the Year. Now Williams is headed to prison for six years. Sometimes life is strange.

Williams, the former CEO of Orion Bank in Naples, Florida, pled guilty in February to charges of conspiracy and lying to regulators. Williams allegedly orchestrated a scheme in 2009 to make Orion Bank appear to be in good health when it was actually undercapitalized, according to prosecutors. The bank ultimately failed, taking millions of dollars of shareholder money with it.

In the wake of the financial crisis, U.S. and international regulators have been pushing banks to maintain a bigger capital cushion. The U.S. Federal Reserve recently released its interpretation of Basel III -- an international pact that requires banks to maintain certain levels of capital -- which included even the smallest banks in the agreement.

As Orion was circling the drain in 2009, Williams reportedly loaned $80 million to Frank Mileto, an Orion customer, so that Mileto could then turn around and buy $15 million worth of company stock, thus making Orion seem stronger than it really was. Prosecutors say Williams didn't tell regulators about this maneuver -- perhaps understandably, since it was illegal.

According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, the prosecutors in Williams's case used more than 100 million pages of documents to make their case.

Like much of the rest of Florida, Naples -- a city of only about 20,000 people -- has been hard hit by the financial downturn. Besides Orion, at least three other Naples banks have failed since the onset of the recession -- Hillcrest Bank Florida; the Bank of Florida-Southwest; and Partners Bank, which in 2009 had the dubious distinction of being the 100th bank federal regulators shut down that year.

Which of course is not at all true but don't let the facts get in the way.

And do you have evidence of criminal activity?

I also remember him from some old Robert Townsend comedy shows on cable.

Not exactly. Robbing a bank usually involves a gun. Guns have a nasty habit of chucking little pieces of lead at people, hurting them. CEOs steal by shuffling pieces of paper.

The same sort of thing happens with shoplifting vs armed robbery.
1) A kid distracts the cashier while his buddy raids the register
2) A kid points a gun a a cashier while his buddy raids the register

Kid 2 is going away for a LOT longer than kid 1

Except "shuffling pieces of paper" at that level causes much more death than a guy with a gun.

This thread has been going for hours -- and not one, "Oh, smeg!" or question about how much time Rimmer or the Cat received, photo of Craig Charles, statement that Kochanski is inconsolable, or contemplation about female Holly in a ladies' prison. Is this really Fark?

I guess I'm all alone -- more or less.

He actually appeared at an autograph convention a year or so ago. The irony is, my girlfriend has a Charles Band movie called Prison starring a young Viggo M. and Tiny Lister is in it, so she got her movie autographed by him.

He took a shotgun shot to the chest while escaping prison in that movie.

Is this a portent of things to come? bum bum bum buuuuuum

So, you're saying there was not any wrongdoing and there have been indictments?

Pick a talking point and stick with it.

CSB time: I met Tiny at Lou Gosset Jr's home in Malibu. Lou introduced me. Really gentle, sweet man in person. He really used his persona, punctuating his chats with the high-school kids (Charity event) with well timed "HAAAA!". They would jump. Hilarious.

/Called him once. 20minute ear beating.
//"No white man ever helped me! It was the blood of Jesus! HAAAA!"

Does he give a different, conflicting account of how he got his eye every time he is asked?


Jus' wondering.
