The judge can let him off the hook after 10 years if he's demonstrated good behavior.

He pays 33% of his salary towards the judgement.
After 55 years he will have paid 1.8 million or .05% of the judgement.
Justice ?

As a teacher of young adults for 30 years, I wish the judge would have imposed a mandatory 5 summer Hot Shot crew requirement: working the chow line, setting up crew facilities, whatever. A 36 million dollar fine is pretty meaningless, in this case.

I think all he will learn is that it's impossible to pay the fine.

I say this with all due respect to the citizens hardest hit by this huge fire. Many of my students from Cascade Locks were severely impacted by this fire.
