    Well he could have gotten life.

    Not so bad. He will probably wind up doing a year..if that.

    Er, yeah, if you read the article you'd know he's expected to meet his bail-bond and be released pending an appeal.

    So, he'll be a free man once he's posted that trifling $10,000 bond.

    No Doubt about it.

    And he'll go to some minimum security "camp" prison which is reserved for elites like Delay, where he'll be more comfortable than is the average E-1 in the military. Those places are nothing like the kind of prisons the common citizen would experience.
