Fastow's sentence

Tom Kirkendall notes the difference between Andy Fastow's (and the Enron Task Force's) representations to the Lay/Skilling jury and to the sentencing judge. Peter Lattman notes that Milberg Weiss's Bill Lerach lobbied for a lighter sentence in exchange for Fastow's testimony against peripheral deep pockets in the Enron civil trials. Speaking of peripheral parties, Fastow, who directly profited from frauds committed at Enron and was central to the entire endeavour of whatever wrongdoing there was, received the same six-year sentence as bystander Jamie Olis.
