The second witness presented by the government was Kenneth Rice, the former head of Enron Broadband Services. He had previously pleaded guilty to criminal charges in connection with his stewardship of that unit, and he agreed in his plea bargain to cooperate with prosecutors by testifying against other Enron executives. ” However, on cross-examination, Rice appeared to be out of touch with his job at Enron, not even knowing how many employees worked for him at Enron Broadband Services. Rice was rewarded for his testimony with only a twenty-seven-month sentence, far less than the sentence sought for Skilling and Lay, and a $15 million fine, which was only a fraction of Rice’s earnings at Enron.
