Fastow's Wife Pleads Guilty in Enron Case

HOUSTON - The wife of former Enron Corp. finance chief Andrew Fastow pleaded guilty Thursday to helping her husband hide ill-gotten income from some of his myriad financial schemes and was sentenced to a year in prison.

The sentence was the most Lea Fastow could have received on the misdemeanor conviction of filing a false tax form. The plea came after months of legal wrangling.

U.S. District Judge David Hittner gave her no fine but placed her on a year of supervised release once the sentence is completed.

"I've made errors in judgment I will always regret for the rest of my life," she told the judge. "But I can't undo the past. I am only able to do what is right now."

2. yeah, a year and out
...possibly less, since she will get time off for good behavior. Then she will go on to live the life of a rich matron, unencumbered by a husband, with all her stolen wealth intact.

No fine. I guess we know how much justice in this country is worth.
