Re: Justice is not always as blind as it should be

I believe that if he had not been such a controversial person, publicly making unpopular business decisions, he might have been treated differently by the legal system, and spent less time in prison.

I can't speak for the US system, but in the UK the judges I've known would treat him in exactly the same way as anybody else. There's exceptions on both sides of the Atlantic, but I suspect the majority of US judges are like most UK judges - clever, unemotional, work within their remit and sentencing "guidelines".
