    The criminal would have

    Please would you correct my mistakes in these conditional sentences.

    1.The criminal would have been convicted if the judiciary had not been corrupted.
    2. If John was able to save enough money in the past, he would not have financial problems today.

    Re: The criminal would have

    #1 is OK. In #2, use "had been" instead of "was".

    Re: The criminal would have

    I'd probably use corrupt rather than corrupted.
