What was he convicted ON? What charge? Obstruction of justice? Article doesn't sat. Lying itself can't be a crime (else every politician and lawyer would be in jail).
Ah, older article did: Dixon, 34, pleaded guilty late last year to charges of obstruction and wire fraud after federal agents targeted him in an undercover sting that was first reported by McClatchy.
Since he pleaded guilty, my sympathy level just went way down.
Wire fraud? A reference to the wires of the machine?
At least it wasn't "terrorism".
