Enron sentencing delayed till October
Lawyers given time to argue against life sentences
Former Enron chief executives Kenneth Lay and Jeffrey Skilling will have to
wait until October to find out how long their prison sentences will be.
US district judge Jim Lake granted the pair’s lawyers more time to prepare
arguments that they should not spend the rest of their lives in prison following
a scheduling conflict, defence lawyer Daniel Petrocelli said.
‘I am in a trial in September and we need more time.’ Petrocelli said.
They are now likely to be sentenced on 23 October
