I don't think the judge had anything to do with it other than 
rubberstamping the deal. I expect, given the evidence that the check and 
custodial person were present, that the DA and the Defense had this all 
worked out prior to the hearing. Looks as if the DA finally realized that 
Dima's not an evil Russian hacker. I wouldn't be surprised if they're 
trying to save some face right now by letting him out on easy terms.
