Looks more like the DOJ "flipped" Minkow, i.e., he turned State's Evidence, and probably because as a previously-convicted felon he would not be treated kindly under the federal sentencing guidelines. Not kindly at all, and recalling the federal time is "hard time" in the sense that most of the time is actually served in prison.

Minkow is to plead guilty to single count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and help authorities investigate person who allegedly hired him to trash Lennar Corp. Hard to believe authorities can't handle this investigation without the help of Minkow.
