Let's just rip the band-aid off.
Jeffrey Skilling, he of Enron, has gotten his sentence reduced by 10 years, and could be eligible for release from prison as early as 2017. He won this early release, as CBS News explains it, through basically using his money to launch appeal after appeal after appeal and tying up the courts so long that the Justice Department had his sentence reduced just so they won't have to deal with him anymore. $40 million will be paid to victims, money that all this time has been tied up while Skilling launched his appeals.
Told you you'd be angry.
