Ex-Enron chief in release hope

City A.M. Reporter
JEFFREY Skilling, the former Enron Corp chief executive serving a 24-year prison term over the energy company's spectacular collapse, may get a chance to leave prison early.

The US department of justice has notified victims of Enron’s fraud and bankruptcy that prosecutors may enter an agreement with Skilling that could result in a resentencing. Skilling has served about six years in prison following his 2006 conviction on 19 counts of securities fraud, conspiracy, insider trading and lying to auditors.
