Accompanied by his wife and attorney, Texas oil man Oscar Wyatt arrived at the federal court and sure what his sentence would be. why he had already pleaded guilty to conspiracy in the scheme to defraud the massive of oil-for-food assistance program. Prosecutors presented evidence of Wyatt talking to Saddam Hussein saying about access of Iraqi oil, scolding international sanction. Another Wyatt attorney called the 83year old tycoon an American hero and noted letters of support from celebrities and ordinary citizens, who said Wyatt had saved and changed their lives.

Among the letter writers are heart specialist Michel Dafenchi and actress Fayra Fossi. Wyatt stood before the judge breaking into tears, the WWII fighter pilot saying "I would never do anything to hurt my country". He apologized to friends and family.

"Can you explain what you said in court for apologizing for the camera is here?"
“Why should I apologize to you?”

Judge Denny Chen heavily praised Wyatt's past humanitarian acts, but said the oil trader clearly broke the law, defrauding in the oil-for-food program, he added. Considering Wyatt's background, it is still hard to understand why he did it.

The Judge went later than the recommended sentence guidelines, ordering Wyatt to serve a prison term for one year.

Wyatt's Texas socialize wife were pleased since her husband could face two years or more in prison. "I am just so proud of my husband when the Judge was talking about him. I was already to just burst"

Wyatt's sentencing comes two weeks later after Chavron oil admitted obtaining Iraqi oil illegally to third parties, and paid 30 million dollars in penalties. Wyatt's lawyer said in court in fact everyone was doing it. "it is not an excuse for Mr. Wyatt, but a culture of the industry"

Wyatt also agreed to offer 11 million dollars to the government. After pleading guilty in October, Wyatt told reporters he didn't want to waste any time at 83 years old. The quicker it's over, the better. Wyatt will serve his time in his natal Texas at Minimon security prison camp.
