Here is the real reason: COV went thru 2 layers of the courts before being exonerated. The magistrates and lower courts don't even know the law of the land. Young DA just out to make a name. Did he ever make an ass out of himself at the trial! :)
Said COV CEO (Don) could plea and get 2 days in jail and $1000 fine. If not, they were pushing max, 30 days in jail and $10,000 fine.
So who's got the money, or balls, to take that chance?
I'd imagine there's lots of CEO's out there with records that didn't break the law.
Little confused here - to my knowledge, neither the CEO nor COV has ever faced such a thing you refer to???? You confusing this with the former parent TYC? Please enlighten with a link or something. Word on the street is that Rich Meelia is not your typical CEO, he's a stand-up guy.
