I also doubt to much will happen - out of the fact they got caught and maybe have to do some ave maria in front of some government offices - and maybe pay back some of the money they stole - I am afraid nothing will come out of it.
To me it looks like the big banks in the US, rule with impunity with their habits - and every now and then they have to pay back some token value from what they stole from the "pessants".... To me it looks more and more like US, have devolved into a older age - where the big rulers, is the banks - and mighty people who rule more and less with impunity from the federal and local governments - they rule like medieval overlords - in their castles over large groups of peasants - who toil for all their life... And they believe it, is the way it should be.. Some is to rule - some to be ruled...

And if they got their way - the "peasants", aka most americans would devolve into a class of serfs (who come from the latin name for slaves, or belonging to someone.. ) like it did when the late roman empire had to defend their way of live, for all cost - even the freedom of their countrymen... And it took europe more than 1000 year, before the idea of serfs - or slaves was not at the books anymore - until the mid 1600, it existed on paper at least in England laws who was bounding people to their place - in serfdom...

Watch up, it could happened in the US too... Learn from history - or be expected to experience it yourself..
