165 years for white collar crime, no fucking chance

They only made $322k, that's nothing.

What did the Enron guys get?

They didnt make enough money to receive a lesser sentence.

Skilling got 24 years which was reduced to 14 in 2013. Lay was convicted of crimes that have a max sentence of 45 years, but died before sentencing.
