Why were the Enron executives arrested?

They weren’t entitled to the compensation they earned? What was the evidence against Ken Lay and the rest?

I don’t understand

    let say your bank balance reads $1400.

    now lets say you force your internal company accounts team to add an extra 3 zeroes to that end of that balance

    your balance now reads $1400000 lol

    thats what Enron were doing back in those days.

    Because insider trading and faking your books for a publicly held company is illegal.
