Intent is everything when it comes to justice.
Nice try but..., the Law (in America) does not excuse someone who WILLING does something illegal. He could have mitigated the extent of his law
breaking by going to the police and explaining why he was being coerced or extorted.
Not likely the most way most would handle the situation, but just stating the legal aspects. I did not see where it went to a jury...seems like a plea
deal...and set himself at the mercy of the court. This time...he "beat the odds" and won a reprieve. This is not "Business as Usual".
