An expert-network consultant convicted of passing confidential information to hedge fund clients of Primary Global Research doesn't want to spend any more than six months behind bars for his crimes.
Manosha Karunatilaka asked for a six month prison sentence and an equal spell of house arrest. His letter to U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff, who will sentence him on Thursday, follows a request from prosecutors seeking as much as four years in prison for the former Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing manager.
