"Bernie Ecclestone offers prosecutors $100m bribe to avoid bribery charges"

From Newsthump:

Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone has offered German prosecutors $100m in order to make his bribery charges go away.

The 83-year-old billionaire went on trial in April, charged with bribery, but those charges might now go away if he can line the correct German pockets with the right amount of money...

We should have this system in the UK for when mega-rich people are caught with their hands in the cookie jar.

Grab 'em by the ankles and shake them a bit, makes more sense than spending millions botching trying to prosecute them or hundreds of thousands locking them up.
