Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair or f-ing beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.- Al Swearengen

My question is, how after being convicted on 17 counts he is out of jail before he is dead?

Because back in the 70's & 80's, Edwin Edwards was considered the 'modern-day' Huey P. Long to most in Louisiana. Despite everyone knowing he was a crook, he is one of the most, if not the most beloved political figures in Louisiana history.

Understood, but totally irrelevant to the amount of time he should be spending in a jail cell for criminal activity.

Considering it took the Prosecutor over 6 months to impanel a jury, I was truly shocked he was found guilty, let alone serve time.
