A single count of bank fraud, under US fed. law, is generally a 30-year max. sentence or a fine of $1mil.  Not sure about minimums, but I've seen people get probation + having to make restitution payments.

In this situation, however, the defendant pleaded out to a single count conspiracy to commit bank fraud -- a much "lower" charge.

This is not to mention any immigration issues at play here, given ICE's involvement and the fact that the defendant is a Romanian citizen.

In any case, I would anticipate that the defendant likely got a pretty favorable deal in exchange for giving evidence on his co-conspirators.
