HOUSTON — Halliburton has agreed to plead guilty to destruction of critical evidence after the Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010, the Justice Department announced on Thursday.

The oil services company said it would pay the maximum allowable fine of $200,000 and will be subject to three years of probation.

The maximum allowable fine should ALWAYS be expresses as a % of total lifetime earnings for corporate citizens who can’t, it seems, ever serve prison time….which denies real people of a % of total lifetime earning
