What an asshole. " he had told several people that if heís sentenced to three years or more, heíll run.". Well, now he's back in jail until the 26th and going to be sentenced on the 21st. His next sun tan will be striped, and by the time he get's out he'll have a hard time walking, let alone running.

I don't understand what was going on in his head.  Did he think people wouldn't notice or that he'd actually get away with any of it?  I'm surprised he hasn't "fallen off a yacht" somewhere...

Yeah this was my first thought too....these were not subtle changes to the contracted arrangements so how long did he think he'd be able to run from this?
