Kenny Boy Crokes In His Condo...

WTF ! ! !

I thought he was convicted. I thought convicted people belong in jail.

Seems to me like the cowboy is soft on crime.

You’re slow’r’n molasses on a cold day, aren’t ya?

Well excuse me for having a life.

And a job.

And not being online all day.

How is waiting to be sentenced and jailed soft on crime?

I hope they check his coffin before they put him in the ground.

Lay death may wipe out conviction, forfeiture
July 6, 2006
The sudden death yesterday of Enron Corp. founder Kenneth Lay could make him an innocent man and shield his estate from tens of millions of dollars in forfeiture claims filed by federal prosecutors, legal experts said yesterday.

Under a precedent established by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in 2004, Lay’s conviction may be vacated because he did not get a chance to have the appeals court review the jury’s guilty finding.

“It’s not like the case is merely dismissed,” said Josh Berman, a former federal prosecutor in Manhattan who is now in private practice in Washington, D.C., with a focus on white-collar criminal litigation and securities law. “Everything associated with the case is extinguished. It’s like the defendant was never even indicted.”…

The Mysterious Death Of An Enron Exec
April 10, 2002
(CBS) It may be the biggest outstanding mystery in the Enron story: the death of Cliff Baxter, a former top Enron executive. He’d just agreed to testify to Congress in the Enron case. A congressional source tells CBS News that Baxter wasn’t a target in the probe, he was to provide evidence against others.

But on the morning of January 25th he was found in his car - shot dead…

I’d wondered about this, actually.

In ancient Rome, killing oneself shielded one’s heirs from losing their inheritance, and was considered the more honorable course.

I do wonder if the autopsy will reveal anything.

Enron witness found dead in park

His conviction will be expunged because he died before he had a chance to appeal, which is his right. Its the same as if he died before ever going to trial. The government needs a conviction in order to force forfeiture of his assets. His estate is NOT shielded from the inevitable civil suits.

I didn’t really think much of conspiracy theories until you wrote this. Now I do wonder if his death wasn’t a little too convenient.
