Other WorldCom sentencings
As detailed in this Reuters report, the sentencings of "five former WorldCom officials who all cooperated with prosecutors probing financial wrongdoing at the company" have gotten underway today. Today, Betty Vinson, a former midlevel manager at WorldCom Inc., was sentenced by US District Judge Barbara Jones to five months in prison and five months home confinement for participating in WorldCom fraud. (White-collar sentencing aficionados might realize this is the same sentence that a certain Martha received.)
UPDATE: This news update now reports that "another former WorldCom official, accountant Troy Normand, was sentenced to three years of probation by the same judge." The White Collar Crime Prof Blog has comments on these sentences here and here.
