Former Enron Corp. Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Skilling, now serving a 24-year prison sentence for misleading his company’s investors, intends to seek a retrial, his lawyer said.
“Mr. Skilling intends to file a motion for a new trial based on newly discovered evidence,’’ Daniel Petrocelli, Skilling’s lead attorney, said in a filing last week in federal court in Houston. The filing didn’t give details of the nature of the new evidence, and Petrocelli didn’t immediately respond today to requests for comment.
