Am I a bad person for admitting that I find this funny?
A federal judge on Friday ordered former Enron CEO Jeff Skilling to stop drinking alcohol, find a job or volunteer work and obey a curfew -- one month after a drunken scuffle on the streets of New York.
U.S. District Judge Frances Stacy added restrictions to Skilling's $5 million bond at the request of prosecutors.
The details of the Manhattan incident were not discussed in the 30-minute hearing. The government has previously said that after the incident, when New York police took Skilling to a hospital around 4 a.m. April 9, his blood alcohol level was 0.19 percent, more than twice the legal driving limit of 0.08 in Texas.
Prosecutors have said Skilling violated his bond by being intoxicated, trying to lift a woman's blouse in search of an FBI wiretap and attempting to steal a car's license plate outside an Manhattan cigar bar.
But defense attorneys contend the government has gotten its facts wrong about the incident and Skilling -- though he had been drinking -- was a victim.
Stacy, who said she conferred with U.S. District Judge Sim Lake, who will be trying Skilling's case, said she wants the curfew to be a term of his bond because it could aid him in meeting his no-alcohol requirements.
"Personally, I can't imagine what good thing can happen outside of your home between the hours of midnight and 6 a.m.," the judge said.
