Raj Rajaratnam Found Guilty

On all 14 counts (9 counts of insider trading, 5 of conspiracy). Raj-Raj now faces up to 19.5 years in prison.

While we wait for the sentencing, wondering what took the jury so long (12 days) to come to a decision? They just didn’t want camp to come to an end.

Jurors in the Raj Rajaratnam insider-trading trial ended their 11th day of deliberations yesterday without a verdict — but with some picturesque mementos of their time together. After court ended, five jurors — including a New York City school teacher, a nurse and a graphic designer for Apple Inc. — sat in front of the fountain in Foley Square, near the Manhattan federal court where they’ve been deliberating for three weeks, and took turns snapping group photos.

With smiles aplenty, they looked like a group that really got along. While they may not have forged a consensus on the 14-count indictment, they seemed to have forged a friendship.

    shoulda listened to Kenny. Probably coulda folded with 5 yearsGalleon founder Raj Rajaratnam once “paid $4 million to have Kenny Rogers come to a birthday party at his house and sing his favorite song, ‘The Gambler,’ over and over again. Kenny refused to go on after a dozen times.”

  33. guest says:

    I think if you get sentenced to over 10 years (he is looking at 15 years plus…), you are not eligible for low security places (a la Martha Stewart)…with that kind of a sentence, sentencing rules require he be sent to a medium security prison. Those places have violent federal offenders…not just white collar types…

    • Hugh says:

      That is 100% wrong. Bernie is at a NC Club Fed.

      • D. Kozlowski says:

        Guest is correct, and there is nothing medium about medium security.

          Also I’m willing to bet that even the folks in a low security Federal pen aren’t exactly the type of guys your average overweight South Asian billionaire would normally be comfortable hanging out with…

        Butner has both low and medium security facilities. Madoff is in the medium security compound. Rigas happens to be in Butner low security, and apparently was sentenced to 15 years. So looks like time doesn’t matter.

    For under 100 million dollar sentenced up to max. 25 years. That´s not much compared to the $50 billion of Bernie. Bernie should be post-sentenced to breath fresh air in the gas chamber, that´s justice. Now he´s sitting in his cell, giving poker advice to his abusers.
