Skilling Released From Prison


Another old enough to remember the Enron scandal, remembers the name Jeffery Skilling.


Back in 2006, Jeff Skilling was originally sentenced in 2006 to 24 years in prison after being convicted of fraud, conspiracy, and insider trading.

A couple of days ago he was released from prison.

Some wondered in Jeffery Skilling was related to WGN Weather Legend Tom Skilling and the answer is yes.

Jeff Skilling is the younger brother of Tom and while the entire Enron messed played out in court and in the media, Tom never really publicly talked about it.

Tom is one of the most beloved people in Chicago and beyond and at the Enron peak, Jeffery was one of the most hated people in America.

It goes to show, you can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your relatives.
