Duncan knew he 'obstructed justice'
Former Andersen partner David Duncan told a Houston court yesterday that he was aware he was breaking the law when he told staff to destroy Enron documents.
He told a criminal court in Houston that he ‘obstructed justice’ and added ‘I instructed people on the team to follow the document retention policy, which I knew would result in the destruction of documents.’
Duncan has pleaded guilty to criminal charges but he is hoping the assistance he is giving the government will reduce his sentence.
According to reports his charges carry a maximum sentence of 10 years.
