About Jeffrey Skilling

  • Jeffrey Keith Skilling (born November 25, 1953) is an American former businessman and convicted felon best known as the CEO of Enron Corporation during the Enron scandal.
  • In 2006, he was convicted of federal felony charges relating to Enron's collapse and eventually sentenced to 24 years in prison.
  • The Supreme Court of the United States heard arguments in the appeal of the case March 1, 2010.
  • On June 24, 2010, the Supreme Court vacated part of Skilling's conviction and transferred the case back to the lower court for resentencing. In April 2011, a three-judge panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the verdict would have been the same despite the legal issues being discussed, and Skilling's conviction was confirmed; however, the court ruled Skilling should be resentenced.
  • Skilling appealed this new decision to the Supreme Court, but the appeal was denied.
  • In 2013, the United States Department of Justice reached a deal with Skilling, which resulted in ten years being cut from his sentence, reducing it to 14 years.
  • He was moved to a halfway house in August 2018 and released from custody in February 2019, after serving 12 years.
