Everyone deserves a second chance fundamentally. He cheated was caught and served his time, so he must be allowed to do his job. My understanding last time I checked is that he didnt receive a life ban, so from a legal point he is free from whence his ban finishes to contract with whomever he wishes.

Morally, he has also paid his debt to society through his conscience, pocket, and general perception by others. I'm sure this has not affected just him but also his immediate family and anyone connected with him, in varying degrees.

Should his punishment continue without end just because some think what he did was morally reprehensible?

It's not as if he killed someone. Even murderers get a second chance so why shouldnt he? He has done his time and I'm sure the episode will play on his conscience long after his ban has finished, That's enough punishement for me. Give the man a break to continue with his trade.Let he who hasn't sinned be the first to throw the stone....
