Kurt Mix, left, leaves Federal Court with an unidentified member of his defense team in New Orleans, Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2013, after he was convicted of one charge that he deleted text messages from his cellphone to obstruct a federal investigation of the company's massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. He was acquitted of a second charge. The count of obstruction of justice carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert) less
