I think Billy would be honored you guys are betting on this.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I think William would be peeved that he isn't raking the pot.
Nevermind.

I'm open to wagers that say he DOES NOT do any jail time



I just read the indictment. I think Martha Stewart went to jail for less.

BUT not all sentences are equal, so there's that.

Great, it's a bet. Martha Stewart wants some action on this too.

You might be right, I know very little about it. I just know the other party has pleaded and given them lots of ammo. We will see. It will be enjoyable to watch how it plays out.

I don't know, these guys were disguising their conversation in code. Not exactly acting casually, like they didn't know what they were doing.

Well, so far in this thread, I think there's about 8 or 9 of you guys who already have him convicted and signing up for license plate class. What happened to that stuff about innocent until proven guilty? Of course, I'm a soft heart, I still think Jodi Arias was innocent.
Don't believe anything until it is officially denied.

Nah, I wouldn't take either side of the "convicted" bet. I think the Southern District of New York office of the US DOJ that is doing this has a reputation for being very thorough & successful in bringing these cases, but Walters has also got a pretty good track record for slithering off the hook of other criminal indictments. So I think even money looks like a pretty solid line to me. And this has little to do with my opinion of him as a major league scumbag; that's been thoroughly established in his extremely well documented corrupt gov't flips land scams for decades for anyone who cares to invest minutes of time to look.
Nevermind.
