Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling get to roam free until their sentencing on September 11th:
He (U.S. District Judge Sim Lake) set sentencing for Sept. 11.
Lake set a $5 million bond for Lay and ordered him to surrender his passport before he leaves the courthouse. The judge said the bond already in place for Skilling was sufficient. The judge said he did not believe home confinement was necessary for either.
The former corporate titans are now felons facing years in prison after being convicted of running an elaborate fraud that gave the company a glamorous illusion of success.
Jurors declared through their verdict that both men repeatedly lied to cover a vast web of unsustainable accounting tricks and failing ventures that shoved Enron into bankruptcy protection in December 2001.
Yup 3 1/2 months to live it up. Now that is really justice. How about the thousands that didn't get a free pass while their bank accounts got drained?
