Enron’s Skilling Cuts Deal

Looks like jail puts some things in perspective. By giving up the right to $40 million he forfeited as well as any right to repeal on 19 convictions, former Enron CEO Jeff Skilling could be out of prison as early as 2017—10 years earlier scheduled. The deal would allow Skilling to return to daily life at age 63 instead of 74. The former CEO was sentenced to the longest sentence of any individual involved in the Enron scandal.
