Let him explain.

Danielle Chiesi, claiming her former boss at New Castle Funds LLC used their “toxic” sexual relationship to manipulate her into feeding him inside tips, asked a judge to sentence her to less prison time than he got for his role in the Galleon Group LLC insider-trading scheme. Mark Kurland, New Castle’s co-founder, “engaged in a ‘vicious cycle of abuse’ and ‘psychological exploitation’ to turn Dani into his ‘virtual servant,’” Chiesi’s lawyers argued in a sentencing memorandum yesterday, quoting a letter to the judge from her boyfriend, Billy...whose full name isn’t disclosed in her lawyers’ public filing.
