    Any chance these crooks get the death penalty?

    Not likely, but maybe some Chinese nationals lost money on the fraud and the government will stick these guys in a hole in the desert.

      Yes GEO's activity is criminal in my book. But there are federal sentencing guidelines and even Madoff didn't get the death penalty because he copped a plea. I wonder when GEO will cop a plea. Similarly, Carnes will be declaring not guilty but the verdict is not in there.

      • Death penalties are extremely rare in federal cases. I think the only fed capital crimes may be treason and aggravated cases of murder (elected officials, FBI agents, etc). But, not to fear, I read an article about the federal white collar prisons that pointed out that white collar penalties have risen sharply since Enron. The Worldcomm dude got 30 years for a crime that 15 years ago might have drawn a 5 or 10 year sentence. The short and distort thugs should be very, very afraid.
