People like a good comeback story.
Thus, when Richard Bistrong emerged from federal prison for pleading guilty to Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations in late 2013, many people become interested in his story. After all, Mr. Bistrong was not just an FCPA violator, but also involved in other conduct. (See here for a Washington Post story providing specifics).
I was one of them who became interested in Mr. Bistrong’s story when I published this detailed Q&A with Mr. Bistrong on FCPA Professor in April 2014 (a Q&A that was subject to various limitations presumably because Bistrong remains on supervised release until January 2017. ).
