It sounds like for Schultz and Curley it is over.
But, I agree it's a travesty. If they really did what they are accused of, a misdemeanor after a plea is hardly fitting. And, if they are not, then having to plead to anything is ridiculous (although very common). I suspect that the truth is somewhere in between and they probably did do wrong although whether or not it was criminally wrong is, I guess, debatable.
But, the time it took is nuts. Justice is not served this way at all.
