WorldCom CEO Ebbers Convicted of Fraud

Former WorldCom CEO Bernard Ebbers is convicted of fraud, but his lawyers say he'll appeal. A federal jury Tuesday found Ebbers guilty of organizing the largest corporate fraud in U.S. history. Ebbers insisted on the witness stand he didn't know the details of his company's financial decisions.
