  1. Better he should learn MISILAT YISHARIM.

    Easy learning Shas in jail when you have all the time in the world. Try to make a living and take care off the family AND learn Shas , now that a feat!

    Anyway Mazel tov to him just the same.

  2. What was the purpose of stating his crimes? Was that appropriate of YWN to do? This information serves no practical purpose, which clearly makes this Lashon HaRa.
