Tucker is serving a sentence of 16 years 8 months, and his lawyer Tim Muir is serving a sentence of 7 years.[1] Tucker's inmate number is 06133-045 and he is scheduled for release from prison on March 4, 2032.[21]

Tucker's story is told in the documentary series Dirty Money on Netflix (Season 1, Episode 2). In the episode, Tucker sat for lengthy interviews with director Jesse Moss, portraying himself as a victim of overzealous government lawyers.[34]

Tucker's payday loan scheme was profiled in American Greed episode titled "The Fast and the Fraudulent" (Season 13, Episode 9).

 

I saw the American Greed episode.

Midwest Recovery received thousands of complaints from consumers each month, the F.T.C.’s complaint said. When the company itself investigated the complaints, it found that as many as 97 percent of the debts were inaccurate or not valid, the agency said.
