Enron Wife Gets New Job

Wife of former Enron finance chief faces prison today

The wife of former Enron finance chief Andrew Fastow reports to federal prison today. Lea Fastow also worked for the company. She will spend the next year in an eight-by-ten foot cell at a facility in downtown Houston. It's several miles from her home in a wealthy neighborhood. She'll probably prepare food or wash bed sheets for less than 50 cents a day. In May, Lea Fastow pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor tax crime, admitting that she helped her husband hide ill-gotten money from financial schemes that fueled Enron's crash in December 2001. Andrew Fastow got a ten-year sentence for conspiracy.
