Some good news

Finally Skilling must go to jail…

Judge Patrick Higginbotham of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals wrote in his two-page order Tuesday that “Skilling raises no substantial question that is likely to result in the reversal of his convictions on all of the charged counts.”

As a result, Higginbotham denied Skilling’s request for bail pending his appeal and vacated an earlier order staying his prison report date.

Skilling is now required to report to a low-security federal prison in Waseca, Minn., to begin serving his 24-year sentence on 19 counts of conspiracy, fraud and insider trading.

  1. Low security facility? Does this mean it only has a 9-hole golf course?
