Japanese government call for Winny P2P users to stop

Following security leaks due to viruses the Japanese government have apparently asked the public not to use the P2P software known as 'Winny.'

Does anyone know what happened to Isamu Kaneko, the assistant professor at Tokyo who got arrested a couple of years ago for developing Winny? As I remember it he was facing large fines and three years in jail? I believe he has been charged but have not heard if the case has come to court yet.
