Black in Business: Disgraced Publisher Out of Prison, Makes Palm Beach Pit Stop


Nelson Mandela, Edmond Dantes, Andy Dufresne... Conrad Black? No, the media mogul who raided his company doesn't leave prison with the same heroic sheen as those other ex-inmates; but you can expect Black to enjoy a post-release life similar to the Count of Monte Cristo. First stop for the chastened billionaire, his Palm Beach abode.

Serving two years on a six-and-a-half year sentence? The true hero of this tale is Black's legal team.
