Ebbers Sentenced To 25 Years Of Appeals
from the fighting-it... dept
Instead of the usual slap on the wrist, it appears that District Court has handed down a 25-year sentence on Bernie Ebbers for the $11 billion Worldcom fraud. Sure, it’s less then you might get for stealing a mobile phone, but it’s still a hefty sentence — and should worry some other corporate execs facing fraud charges. Ebbers, of course, will appeal, so it’s likely that there’s still plenty more to come in this saga.
