Not surprisingly, Jeff Skilling received a sentence in excess of 24 years in prison (292 months). (see Wall Street Jrl here) Surprisingly, he will not be allowed to remain free on bail pending the appeal, although he can remain free until such time as the Bureau Prisons determines his new residence and he has to report there. (see Houston Chronicle here). If one were expecting remorse to mitigate the sentence, it did not happen as Skilling continued to maintain his innocence. More to come....
