Other way around:

"So, Paul, you're 68. "

"This thing goes to trial and you're convicted, you're looking at 10, 20 years in the federal pen. Might never see the outside again. Might die of old age in your cell."

"Or, you could share what you know with us, testify as needed, maybe get three years at Club Fed, and you're out at 71 or so."

"Your choice, Paul."
