    Peanut exec in salmonella case gets 28 years
    Kevin McCoy, USA TODAY
    8 hours ago

    ....Parnell was hit with a virtual life prison term Monday for his 2014 conviction on crimes related to a salmonella outbreak blamed for killing nine and sickening hundreds.

    A federal judge in Georgia sentenced the 61-year-old former head of Peanut Corporation of America to 28 years behind bars....


    .....Judge W. Louis Sands also sentenced the former executive's brother, Michael Parnell, 56, to serve a 20-year prison term.....


    ....Mary Wilkerson, 41, a former quality control manager at the now-defunct peanut firm, drew a five-year prison term for her conviction on obstruction in the tragedy.

    Sands also ordered both Parnells to surrender, rejecting defense arguments that the two should be allowed to remain free on bond pending appeals.....

    The free market should decide if consumers want to risk eating tainted food. Leave it to liberals to tell a businessman how to run his business.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    I would prefer the guy do 5 years in prison and ten years probation where he has to be on the road sharing his story with other companies and execs who think they cannot get in trouble.
