Jeffrey Skilling - Come On Down..
"Under federal sentencing guidelines, which Lake has said he will rely on, Skilling faces more than 20 years in prison if investor loss tied to his actions exceeds $80 million. Skilling also faces more than $18 million in fines for his crimes.
Jack Sylvia, a Boston-based attorney with the firm of Mintz Levin, said Skilling is facing a longer sentence that could send him away for life. Lay's death and the reduced sentence former Enron chief financial officer Andrew Fastow got last month might be factors in Skilling's sentence, he said.
“The reality is when dealing with somebody who is middle-aged, a sentence of even 20 years can more often than not be a life sentence,” he said.
Some say that's a tough break, but as the head of the Enron Task Force...I say enjoy...BAM!
UPDATE: 24 years and 4 months for Skilling. Justice has been served. Next!
