Death Benefit

From the Houston Chronicle:

What he couldn't do in the courtroom, former Enron Chairman Ken Lay may finally be able to achieve in death -- avoid a criminal record.

Lay, 64, who died of a heart attack in Aspen, Colo., early Wednesday morning, will likely have his case vacated, meaning it will be as if he were never charged.
