Prison, Anyone?

For 20 years an aluminum extruded company has been providing product to NASA, and those extrusions have been below standards, purposely.

The results, according to a government investigation, were two missile losses along with associated payroll, totaling some $700 million. The Oregon Company, Sapa but now Hydro Extrusions Portland, has been reorganized after committing this fraud. It paid $46 million in fines and faces still more in criminal charges for falsifying inspection results.

Two questions: Why has not this been important news, and why are the Principals not already in prison?
