Phoenix Wright Would Not Be Pleased...

Two partners in crime, who also happen to be siblings, have been sentenced in a trial that alleged they scammed several otaku. The pair worked as a team as the sister bumped into people on the streets of Akihabara, and her brother moved in and demanded apologies and payments from the victims. Together, they extorted about 110,000 yen or 1,000 USD.
As Anime News Network reports, "The twin brother, Chuo University junior Satoshi Isono, was sentenced to one year and six months of imprisonment with three years of probation. The sister, Yuka Isono, was sentenced to one year and two months of imprisonment and three years of probation."
The brother was working for a law degree at Chuo University.

...And likely, Satoshi won't have much of a career now. Unless there is a law firm in Japan that goes for the ambulance chaser-types of lawyers with a history of situating the law in their favor, he will likely settle into a good job of pickle inspector at MosBurger.
