A federal grand jury indicted him the same month. He was released from jail in September 2010 but remained confined to his Pebble Beach home under court supervision.

SK Foods declared bankruptcy in 2009 and was later purchased by Olam International.

All good things comes to those that are self-centered, arrogant and think of them selves above the rules of norm that the rest of us live by. These situations create doubt and a loss of confidence in the public eye. Its creates a lack of trust for all grower, processor, and end user to the public. I trust that the judge hands down a just sentence for the blatant practices that these people perpatrated on the public. Bubbas' probably looking to having new visitors.

Cecil, may be you should refrain from talking NONSENSE! You're SOOO naive! So many side deals and what not happen on a day to day basis with other CEO's and top management of produce companies. I believe that they are just smarter in that they watch who is let in on it. It still very much a "good ol' boys club" in the produce industry. And, "Bubba" looking for new visitors, maybe, you speak of personal experience "IF" you know of Bubba!

Steve, naive or not, it is a good example. Integrity is a quality that so many leaders lack of.

Here, Here! It's harder to fake integrity in this age of fast moving research on the internet. I doubt anyone would have caught on or much less heard of this man's actions twenty years ago.
