What do you think would be a fair sentence for Skilling and Lay, assuming their guilty verdict was correct?

I voted for 10 because I'm a sap and feel sorry for their families. Although considering how many peoples lives they affected negatively I understand how someone would feel they should get more time. And since these guys are softer than rotting fruit their time will be pretty sucky (no pun intended). Prior to retiring my work occasionally took me to the NYC corrections facility at Rikers Island and while it's unlikely these guys will see that kind of situation I don't think they will be having any fun anytime soon.

I think they should get probation. That is what that teacher in Florida got for molesting a student. I'm pissed off about this teacher thing.
Nah, they should get 10 years plus 5 years of probation with 10,000 hours of community service watching the border....LOL.

I said 10 years...
What they did was very bad, but let's face it.. they didn't kill anyone.. so I don't think I could go for 25 years.
If 15 was a choice, I would have gone for that.
lol i like ur border idea nathan

Since he has a new found religion, plus his googels of loot protected from the Federalis, Rev. Lay of the Holly Order of Scumbags will be dead of old age before he spends a gentle night with his buds 'round a keg of K-Y, seeing who can squeal like a piggy the loudest...

I originally voted 5 years, but now I feel dumb. Me and guy I work with were talking about this and I now feel what they did was worse than murder when you consider how many people had their retirement stolen! Maybe 5 years in the SuperMax prison :mad:

Hopefully 10-15 years in Club Fed...remember this was a Federal crime. No early release :) Bastards deserve every day in there. Also take away all the money earned by Enron. There family does not deserve to live very well on the money stolen from people that can really use it.
Another thing. If they were given full sentences for the crimes they committed they would get over 100 years. I am very happy that these execs did not gets a slap on wrist like so many before them.

they will get some lame sentence...due to buying good lawyer with all the money they made...

I voted 25 years. Set a good example because it could be any one of us at our respective co.s with top level executives cooking the books next time.

I voted 25 years also but now that I think about it 15 sounds better because all of their assets were frozen. Not only did these guys suffer but their families will suffer as well...not sure how much money was frozen or returned. 5 years seem like a slap on the wrist.

they should get life. they're a couple of crooks who ruined alot of peoples lives for their own greed. of course, i used to work for worldcom, so maybe i'm a little biased!! since the worldcom debacle, i lost a good chunk of 401k, was stuck in a hiring freeze for 5 years (no raises or promotions), and had to survive about 50 different layoff periods. wondering if you're going to get laid off or not for 5 years sucks!! from worldcom to mci to now verizonbusiness, i survived the entire way, but alot of good people and friends did not. they were good, hard working people who lost their jobs for a few greedy bastards. the irony now is we all have to take these ethics classes online every now and then even though we (the common worker) never did anything wrong.
well, as i said i am biased, but those of you who voted 5 years are clueless to the amount of pain caused by a couple of greedy bastards already making millions.
