This seems to be a private version of the Probation Before Judgement (PBJ) plea deal frequently issued by the (corrupt?) court system now. The only difference being who gets to keep the booty. Whether the PBJ is issued by a judge and requires anger management, defensive driving or substance abuse classes, paid for by the "guilty" to prevent being called guilty, makes little difference. It is a shakedown either way since you "volunteer" or else.
