Ex-Enron broadband CFO may get sentence reduced
Appeal likely to see most federal convictions overturned
According to the
Chronicle, the government has recommended that four of five federal
convictions against Howard be overtuned because it doesn’t believe the charges
will stand up on appeal.
This follows the government conceding in a court filing that jurors may have
convicted Howard on four counts of conspiracy and wire fraud based on a flawed
theory presented by prosecutors.
Howard was convicted of the five counts of fraud, conspiracy, and falsifying
records in May this year.
