Very hard to fault someone in that situation. He probably could have taken money from a booster no strings attached and just hoped not to get caught, which a lot of guys probably do, or he could have done something far worse. He chose to sell his stuff, which probably seemed like the best option at the time. He later took legitimate work to help out.
If someone hasn't been in that situation it's pretty easy to judge. (generic someone, not directing this comment to anyone in particular). I don't think what he did was a character issue, based on what I've read.
