Hobby Lobby To Forfeit Smuggled Iraqi Antiquities

Why isn't someone going to jail?

They were warned that the articles were probably looted from Iraq. They bought them anyway. This article hints at many red flags and Hobby Lobby claims they were
".. new to the world of acquiring these items, and did not fully appreciate the complexities of the acquisitions process. This resulted in some regrettable mistakes."
A radio story, NPR i believe, interviewing an expert made it sound like Hobby Lobby isn't all that "new" at this and based on their past should have known better.

If I bought a car I knew was stolen, I'd be going to jail.
