Affiliated exec gets prison time UPDATE

Posted By on Tue, Oct 26, 2010 at 2:00 PM

John Mills, the former CEO of the now defunct Affiliated Foods Southwest, got a 41-month federal prison sentence this morning for a check kiting scheme, KARK reports. He was also ordered to repay more than $3 million to a bank. Presumably, unlike in the Vilonia football receipts case, payment of the money won't buy his way out of prison.

Here's the U.S. attorney release.

UPDATE: And while we're about white collar crime: here's the U.S. attorney's report on a 41-month sentence given a Rogers woman, Dana Washburn, in a $3.6 million bank fraud case.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
