Another Enron exec gets a light sentence

Paula Rieker, who pleaded guilty to insider trading while at the now-bankrupt megaloconglomerate, got 2 years' probation. She faced up to 10 years in prison. She sold stock before a gigantic loss was reported.

Another Enron scoundrel beats the system. Crime does pay. Very well. (Don't let the kids read this last paragraph -- it will ruin your years of awesome parenting.)
