Hi, Do I put deserved or deserves? What does it mean if I put "ed" instead of "s?"

He caught shoplifting and went to jail.

He deserves it!

Anon:
He deserves it is present tense. You are saying (right now) that justice is being done. Since the main sentence is past tense, present tense really does not fit.

He deserved it is past tense. You are stating that he deserved (at that time in the past) to go to jail.
It is correct to say (right now) that this sentence is what he deserved.
