+ - Hewlett Packard's Dunn Pleads Guilty to Wire Fraud

Submitted by GogglesPisano
GogglesPisano writes: CNN reports that former HP chairwoman Patricia Dunn will plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of fraudulent wire communications stemming from her involvement in last year's corporate eavesdropping scandal. The original charges, four felony counts, were reduced to misdemeanors in exchange for a plea bargain. Her three co-defendents are expected to receive 96 hours of community service; in Dunn's case this sentence is likely to be waived due to illness.
So, apparently Dunn will face no punishment for her disgraceful role in orchestrating this debacle. Another case of separate legal standards for the rich and powerful?

BYTE editors are people who separate the wheat from the chaff, and then carefully print the chaff.
