Former Enron CEO and Missouri native Ken Lay has been found guilty on all the charges in the corporate fraud trial relating to the collapse of the energy company. Lay could face 45 years or more in prison. Lay is a native of Tyrone in southern Missouri, attended Hickman High School in Columbia, and is a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia. In 1999, he donated Enron stock to the University of Missouri to create a $1.3-Million economics chair. The school has had trouble filling the chair in his name. Lay has even asked for the money back twice, but the university has denied his requests.
