Then there are those who have been dumb. They did stupid things like communicating through phones on which conversations could be recorded and practicing poor timing. Those include the bunch brought to justice in the Galleon Hedge Fund crackdown: Rajiv Goel, Rajat Gupta, and Raj Rajaratnam. Their crime was arrogance that led them to be reckless.
Today, Goel will be sentenced, reports Bloomberg. He could wind up in prison for up to 20 years or remain free, a broken man, in society.
