Inform-Trans-BarryMinkow» Barry Minkow
is heading back to prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit
stock fraud. In 1988 Minkow was convicted of stock fraud and
incarcerated. While behind bars he gave his life to Christ, emerged from
prison as a pastor and launched a stock-fraud investigation company to
uncover corporate corruption. It appears the temptation to cook the
books was too much for Minkow. He  admitted to conspiring to manipulate Lennar Corp.’s stock and will return to prison for at least five years.
