Too bad, they did some fantastic sculpts at a reasonable price, but there's no defending what they did.

Damn. I have a whole mini shelf of those figures on display. I feel kinda bad about it now. Though you can't blame the artists and the workers for the the jerks on the business side did. Their work is still admirable.

I'm not understanding the "sentenced to one year, suspended for 3 years." does that mean that in three years they go to jail?

No. It means that they have three years of court supervision - if they behave themselves during that time they'll never have to actually see the inside of a cell but if they put a foot wrong they'll immediately be carted off to serve the full one year sentance.
It's similar to the probation process in which the offender is let out early but has to go back and serve the remainder of their sentance if they break the terms of their probation.
