I'm sure these guys will be fine, no need to jump the gun and form a kickstarter for prison lube or anything

I wouldn't be so sure about them being fine..

In 2001 several British and Dutch airplane spotters spent 6 weeks in jail before being released on bail. None of them expected any problems fighting the espionage charges (max sentence: 20 years).

However, returning to trial they were convicted to 1-3 years in prison. This was only overturned on appeal a year later, after heavy diplomatic lobbying by the British and Dutch governments.
