Former Enron CFO Offered a Lenient Sentence

September 27, 2006 at 4:28 am (Companies, US)

Andrew Fastow, former CFO of Enron, was sentenced six years in jail, a judgment much more lenient to a central figure of the fall of Enron. (read report from the Wall Street Journal)

Fastow offered a full cooperation to the prosecutors. But whether this cooperation justified a generous sentence is under much debate. Read Law Professor Blog.

Among the other two key persons of Enron scandal, Ken Lay is dead, Jeff Skilling is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 23 and is expected to stay in prison for 20 years.
