He's a repeat offender, and has stolen millions besides attempting to extort Nike.  He's a danger to the public and should receive 14 years at a minimum.
So passing a fake $50 at a convenience store is public execution without trial, but stealing millions and attempted extortion to the tune of $25 million is six months in jail.
/It's great to have enough money to afford the other justice system.

He's rich and white so that works in his favor.

But he stole from other rich people so he's farked.

The dummy should have studied and learned how to properly set up the shakedown from the ADA racket. They're experts at the threatened lawsuit in exchange for their lawyers getting paid to help with compliance. He tried to do the shakedown fast and lazy, so it fell flat and left him out in the wind. The bigger takeaway is that this kind of threat is common - he just farked it up.

Being a lawyer does not give you carte blanche shielding from client lawyer relations. Rudy got away with it because he was also a politician and understood the justice system from both sides. If a lawyer does something bad while practicing law there are extra hoops that the justice system has to jump through before bringing them to justice. That's it

Yeah, I'll tell you who's the master criminals: the guy in the wheelchair trying to go about their normal day.

I tend to think that financial crimes should come with a minimum sentence length determined by the amount of money involved and related to the median income in the defendant's county-of-residence as of the year prior to when the crime was committed.  If the crime(s) spanned several years, then use the highest year's median income to determine the sentence.

Sentence should be (at a minimum) as many months as the total dollar amount of the crime(s) divided by the monthly median income for the county.

So, if the crime is $25 million, you lived in Manhattan, and the crime was committed in 2019...

$25,000,000 / $118,161.00 = 211 months in prison.
