  •  LHM - Skilling's lawyers negotiated a plea deal (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    It's clear from the deal that the DoJ though that Skilling had a some chance that he would win on his appeal. This happens in criminal cases all the time. Each side had potential risks and rewards if the appeal continued to work its way through the courts and at some point a deal was cut that was acceptable to both parties. I don't know enough facts or applicable law to know if the DoJ made a good deal or not.
