Ebbers faces 85-year jail sentence

US prosecutors call for 85-year jail term for former WorldCom chief

Former WorldCom chief Bernie Ebbers could face an 85-year jail sentence if US
prosecutors have their way.

The government has filed a request for what amounts to a life sentence with a
court in New York, and Ebbers, 63, will be sentenced on 13 July.

Ebbers has been convicted on nine counts of fraud for his part in the
spectacular collapse of WorldCom in 2002, which left $11bn of debts unaccounted
for.
