Former Westar CEO Ordered Back to Prison

By  | 

A former Westar Energy CEO is headed back to prison to finish his 24-month sentence for bank fraud.

U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson ruled David Wittig could not suspend his sentence while asking the U.S. Supreme Court to intervene in his case.

Robinson said the Tenth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals already ruled a delay in his case was unwarranted.

Witting already has served a little more than one year in prison on a conviction for lending $1.5 million to former Topeka bank president Del Weidner, then helping him hide the transaction.
