Lay & Skilling - GUILTY:

After 6 days of deliberation by the jury, Jeffrey Skilling and Kenneth Lay - the former CEOs of Enron - have been found guilty of fraud, conspiracy and other charges.



Skilling could now face up to 185 years in jail, and Lay could face up to 45 years. Both are planning to appeal.

    What's with the ridiculously long Yankee sentences? 185 years? That is just crazy.

    I'm with anonymous - there is some justice in the world. My faith in in the justice system has been restored.

    Anon & Elsa, I wholeheartedly agree!

    John, Isn't 185 years better than 18 months?!
