A deal was finalized Friday in a Houston federal court to reduce the prison sentence of former Enron Corp. CEO Jeffrey Skilling by almost a decade to 14 years, making him eligible for release from a Denver federal prison in 2017. The Department of Justice in May had reached an agreement with Skilling, 59, under which Skilling waived his right to any further appeals and allowed more than $40 million of his forfeited assets to be distributed to victims of Enron’s collapse in 2001 (see Daily GPI, May 9). Skilling was convicted in 2006 on 19 criminal counts and sentenced to 24 years and four months (see Daily GPI, May 26, 2006). The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans twice said the sentence had been miscalculated (see Daily GPI, April 8, 2011).
