Lou Pearlman - 25 years but...

Lou Pearlman, founder of the Backstreet Boys, received a a 25 year sentence (see here). But as Professor Doug Berman over at Sentencing Law & Policy describes here - it's a creative sentence as he can receive a month off for each one million he gives back to victims. Pearlman plead guilty to "two counts of conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States (Counts one and two), one count of money laundering (Count three), and one count of presenting or using a false claim in a bankruptcy proceeding (Count four)." (see here)
