Enron's Skilling May Be Free As Soon As 2017 Or 11 Years Early

As we reported a month ago, when we reported that Enron CEO Jeff Skilling may be released from prison early, moments ago we just learned that, to nobody's real surprise, the mastermind of the biggest US bankruptcy in the early 21st century may be behind bars for just four more years, cutting his total sentence, which was scheduled to expire in 2028, by 11 years. From Bloomberg:

Indeed he did: which is why it is surprising he served any prison time at all.

So in brief: justice for all, except for those who have $40 million set aside for "restitution payments."
