I think MKS was Mike Kelly - and if so, he didn't, exactly, "get out of it". Wound up with a conviction in Federal Court and minor time and some probation, i believe. Had the case and out-come at one time (I got subpoenaed to appear asa witness - long story that - but the subpoena was withdrawn when the case plead out prior to trial). No idea where the file I kept is now, likely in a box in storage. Waiting for the mood to strike me to shred some more retired files.
