Ex-Goldman Sachs Programmer Found Guilty

Readers twoallbeefpatties and ngrier wrote in essentially simultaneously about the guilty verdict in the trial of former Goldman Sachs computer programmer Sergey Aleynikov. We’ve discussed the case several times before. The trial itself was sealed from the public to prevent discussion of GS’s high-frequency trading system. Reader ngrier summarizes: “After just three hours of deliberation, the jury found Sergey Aleynikov guilty of intentionally stealing proprietary Goldman Sachs code. As he had admitted copying the code as he was preparing to join a startup competitor in 2009, the case hinged on the intent. He faces up to 10 years in prison.”
