The Atlanta Jrl Constitution has an article here looking at whether white collar offenders should be able to receive their pensions. The cases they examine are in some cases related to corruption (although Former Mayor Bill Campbell was not convicted of a corruption related crime). The article outlines some of the convictions, the crimes, the sentences, and the amounts being received by these individuals in pensions.
It is important to note that courts may have an option to order Restitution. The Federal Sentencing Guidelines, Guideline 5E1.1 speaks directly to the method for determining restitution.
