Final Enron sentencings

As detailed in this Houston Chronicle story, two final Enron executives learned their sentencing fate on Friday.  Here are the basic details:

Two former Enron executives who pleaded guilty to crimes and helped prosecutors pursue others in the scandal-ridden company learned their punishments today. Michael Kopper, former Enron finance chief Andrew Fastow's onetime top lieutenant, will serve three years and one month in prison followed by two years probation for helping scam the company out of millions of dollars while manipulating its books, U.S. District Judge Ewing Werlein ruled today. Shortly thereafter, Werlein sentenced former Enron investor relations chief Mark Koenig to 18 months in prison followed by probation for two years for helping top management mislead investors about the company's financial health.
