Carefully parsing John’s statements, it appears that question will not be settled until the outcome of criminal proceedings is known, at which time ARIN will have the authority to revoke further address space if it can be shown that criminal activity put the scammer in breach of the RSA on any space he acquired directly and not through fraudulent representations. 

Let’s withhold judgement on what the scammer may have “gotten away with” until the wheels of justice have finished grinding.
