It looks like more convictions in the corporate crime wave of the last 10 years:
A federal judge tentatively accepted a plea agreement Thursday for the wife of former Enron finance chief Andrew S. Fastow, a move that could lead to a plea from Fastow and possibly his cooperation with prosecutors investigating other top executives in the energy giant’s collapse.
Under the deal, Lea Fastow, a former assistant treasurer at Enron, would go to prison for five months. However, U.S. District Court Judge David Hittner said he had “preliminary concerns” and wanted a presentencing investigation to determine if the sentence was appropriate before finalizing it.
The big guys can’t be too far away.
