U.S. District Judge Paul Gardephe turned down Mathew Martoma's request to delay reporting for prison on November 10th. Martoma argued he needed time to submit his appeal of the conviction.
In Bloomberg, Patricia Hurtado reports that the judge doubted the appeal would work, given the overwhelming evidence presented against Martoma during the month-long trial. Here is that coverage.
Likely, as he is serving his nine-year sentence, Martoma will continue to file motions on his behalf. His legal bills are being paid by his former employer Steve Cohen. At that time the hedge fund was called SAC. It has been renamed and bonuses have been established by Cohen for ethical behavior by employees.
Those playing Freud probably have analyzed Martoma as the kind of co-dependent creature who needs the approval of all authority figures. Those range from his parents to a powerful invstment leader like Cohen. Perhaps in prison he may develop a sense of self. Some lost souls like Watergate's Chuck Colson wind up blossoming in the slammer.
