A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Friday that "probation for a high-ranking officer in a corporation where over a billion dollars of fraud was perpetrated on an unsuspecting work force and investing public is not reasonable."
McVay's five-year probation penalty once before was returned in 2006 for resentencing by an Alabama federal judge, who passed the same sentence.
The government appealed again.
McVay got a year's probation in June in another case, illegally
making a series of cash deposits totalling $182,000.
