Three former executives of General Electric (GE) affiliates were convicted by a federal jury in New York of conspiracy charges related to bid-rigging contracts in the municipal bond market. The convictions are the result of an ongoing investigation by the DoJ's New York Office, and each of the charges carries a maximum penalty per count of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

    Crucify them upside down in front of the NYSE and let them rot there!

    They had to take one for the team, I guess. I am sure the jury was very sympathetic to these guys...not.

    I'm sure that they will be given the maximum penalty provided by law as an example to other miscreants who might try to do similar criminal acts and I am also sure that I will win the next mega million
    lottery. America is a great country where money can buy you almost anything except honor and respect.

    You're correct to bring those up in this context, lest anyone forget.

    GE execs are sacrificing whole chickens about now to thank the gods that watch over their black hearts for JPM stealing their rightful headlines...

    Maybe they should have planted some Coke on them, then they could go away from 20 years.


    White collar crime sentences are a joke.

    Immelt is also a cook in my view, though Obama protects him. He needs a cook in the white house. Calling somebody a cook is not slander.

    Mr. Corzine is now baking bread in southern Italy.


    Apparently, his bread is so good that the Italian government is giving him asylum.


    Rumor has it that there is a tiny bit of gold in each loaf he bakes.
