“He will get back a meaningful part of his life”

Business quote of the day.

“He will get back a meaningful part of his life”
The lawyer of Jeffrey Skilling, the former chief executive of Enron, on the possibility Skilling could be released from prison nearly a decade earlier than expected.
Skilling’s 24-year sentence could come down to 14 years, because he has agreed not to appeal against his conviction.
His lawyer Daniel Petrocelli said in a statement that a reduced sentence would give the former CEO "at least the chance to get back a meaningful part of his life.”
