It's come to this: Former pillar of the business establishment and Indian philanthropist Rajat Gupta, 63, could die behind bars. His sentencing for 3 counts of securities fraud and 1 count of conspiracy has been rescheduled for October 17, reports BLOOMBERG. For both, the maximum sentence could be 25 years.
The media have moved on to other enigmas and no longer speculate what drove the one-time head of McKinsey to cavort with crooks. In prison he will just be a number. However, those in charge focused on rehabilitation could assign him to tutor inmates on business fundamentals. When they are released, they could set up their own enterprises.
Will he, like Watergate's Chuck Colson and New York serial killer Son of Sam, have a jailhouse conversion and issue a mea culpa? Unlikely since Gupta seems like shut-in, proud man. So, it's not probable that we will hear much from him or about him in the future.
