He would have faced 35 years in the slammer if convicted. (Even murderers and rapists don't get 35 years for their crimes, but that's a topic for probably the political forum.) The trial weighed heavily on him and apparently became too much.

His very last blog post (from last November) discussed TDK, curiously enough. The last bit is particularly poignant, and he seems to liken himself to the Joker, who points out society's hypocrisies.

Doesn't sound like the whole story to me.

Either way, that's just one view I don't agree with.
