Another update on the Olis resentencing

As detailed in press reports here and here, the two-day resentencing hearing for former Dyegy executive Jamie Olis concluded today with Judge Sim Lake indicating that he hopes to announce a new sentence before the end of next week.

UPDATE:  This Houston Chronicle story now provides more details about the full Olis resentencing hearing.  It notes an interesting point raised by the defense: "[Defense attorney] Gerger said the prosecutors were trying to discourage defendants from going to trial, not from committing crimes, with extremely long sentences. 'What the prosecution is asking for goes way beyond what's needed to deter crime,' Gerger said. 'They want to deter trials.'"
