It will be interesting as a white collar felon, how he will fare in the job market when he finishes up his sentence. His particular stigma is rather unique and there are unlike many other felons likely a divided employment community waiting for him. Some will deny him much opportunity with mistrust and other employers will likely embrace and welcome him. For the many other felons some of whom have resorted to crimes for any number of reasons, their futures are much more consistently bleak. It's to bad society can't distinguish among the real differences among these human beings getting out of prison. Many end up going back to there since there really isn't much for them upon which they can subsist when they get out, even the ones that could actually possibly thrive.
