Cenla's Newest Resident: Bernard Ebbers!
Former WorldCom CEO and head engineer of the largest corporate scandal in the history of our nation (yes, at $11 billion, WorldCom was still bigger than Enron), Bernard "Bernie" Ebbers, drove himself (in his new white Mercedes sedan) to prison today in nearby Oakdale, where he will likely serve the majority of his twenty-five year sentence. Welcome to the neighborhood, Bernie. Ebbers, who was born in Canada, first made his fortune during the 1980s by creating his own chain of motels in Mississippi. He was convicted of fraud and conspiracy in March of 2005. (From what I understand, the Oakdale Correctional Complex isn't exactly a country club prison. Should be a learning experience for him).
