Jeffrey Skilling, the former chief executive of Enron who was sentenced to 24 years in jail several years ago for his role in the company's spectacular downfall, may be released early as his lawyers negotiate with the Justice Department, the Financial Times reported yesterday. Skilling was sentenced in 2006 after he was convicted of 18 counts of securities fraud and conspiracy while leading the Texas-based energy trading company. The firm collapsed in what at the time was the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history.
