These 3 knew what they were doing, and it can not be explained away as acting naive and stupid.They are going to Jail for a very long time.
Given the known and assumed nature of this, I agree. Likely not a slap on the wrist.
Maybe not long, hard-term prison time, but I would guess at least a few years and a decade of probation.
But who knows, perhaps some or all will get less.
What one or all three did(removing and discarding MAJOR criminal evidence), fully knowing this was a serious Fed investigation, and lying to the Feds on top of that, is not going to sit well with a judge/jury, to be sure.
