He bought a round of drinks for a group of us a couple of weeks back at a local Eugene nightclub. I did not know he’d be there.
Everybody here at school has known about his conviction, including myself, since last year.
Since hearing about his arrest and conviction last year, it’s interesting that I see this guy performing and socializing in Eugene all the time, awaiting, I imagine, his sentence. He seems to have a cosmopolitan and magnetic personality that attracts people (“I’m friends with an international fraud criminal!”). He also has money, and buys rounds of drinks for groups.
When I ask myself why anybody would want to hang out with this criminal, I wonder if I’m being too harsh. What do you think?
