Statement Of Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara On The Conviction Of California Hedge Fund Portfolio Manager Doug Whitman

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, August 20, 2012

“Douglas Whitman now joins the grim procession of convicted Wall Street professionals who decided that the rules don't apply to them. The rules do apply. Over and over again, juries of good, common-sense citizens have said the rules do apply, and they have held defendants like Mr. Whitman accountable for breaking them. Mr. Whitman had a hedge fund with his name on the door, with rules against insider trading. He flouted those rules, tarnished his name and now is a convicted felon facing imprisonment. I want to thank both the jury for their service and the fine career prosecutors from my office who so ably tried this case for their hard work and dedication.”
