IMO there is a clear difference between a person who just ran into some problems with law and someone who is simply criminal. Whatever you may say about Golota and Szpilka (and I'm not fan of Szpilka), they were nowhere close to make crime their job.
Hopkins was a criminal, but once he served his time and started professional career you never heard about him being involved in anything that could led to legal problems. So for me the case is closed.
And, last but not least, on top of running a brothel he (Kostecki) has got some serious accusations about drug dealing. His lawyers got him out of this part... so even if you regard him innocent until proven in this aspect you probably undestood why some people are not his fans.
