The thing is that I am sure he would have received a 3 month Suspended Sentence, and be free to move on whereever he wants to stay after that.
Instead he's spent what, 18 months, 2 years in house arrest in a process that's completely collapsed WikiLeaks and the good job that was being done.
Now, when he does appear in a court here in in Sweden, the details of his (alledged) behavior with these women will become public record. The punishment, if he's found guilty at all, will be minimal, and all that will remain is the image of a jerk who fled responsibility.
If he's found innocent and let go, he will - of course - look even more foolish and paranoid.
It's indeed a sad story this.
