Brien Santarlas Insider Trading Case
NEW YORK CITY -- Brien Santarlas, an attorney who lived in New Jersey and practiced law at Ropes & Gray LLP in New York City, received a six-month prison term in December 2011 for passing information on pending mergers to stock traders, a case intertwined with the Galleon Hedge Fund prosecutions for which Raj Rajaratnam, founder of the fund, received an 11-year-federal sentence.
Attorney Robert G. Stahl, who represented Santarlas, used his experience as a former federal white-collar crime prosecutor to help Santarlas cooperate with prosecutors and receive a lenient sentence in reward for that cooperation.
