Now Here's An Innovative Judge - $1000000 for 1 month

Wow. Lou Pearlman, con artist of boy band fame (Backstreet Boys, 'NSync, O'Town), was sentenced today to 300 months incarceration - with the proviso from the Judge that one month would be knocked off the sentence for each $1,000,000 that Pearlman provided in restitution.

Since Pearlman was found to have looted $300 million from his victims, the Judge pointed out, this was conceivable a Get Out of Jail Free card.

I'm lovin' this Judge -- of course, Pearlman has to still HAVE the money for this to be anything more than cocktail party fodder.
