It is my understanding he retired or resigned.
That doesn't mean he doesn't get sick pay, vacation pay, pension etc.
He is under House arrest? He can only go to work for a Job he quit?
Therapy , much therapy and his pension should go to the Victim.( when/ if found guilty).

Did u hear the 91 tape? Heart breaking!
