Former Goldman Sachs Director Seeks HIV Community Service

Defense lawyers for Rajat Gupta want a federal judge to issue a lenient sentence of probation and community service helping Rwanda improve its services for HIV and other social needs instead of a prison sentence of up to 10 years for insider trading, The New York Times reports. He has more than 400 letters of support from prominent individuals such as Bill Gates, the Microsoft billionaire and philanthropist, and Kofi Annan, the former United Nations secretary general. The former Goldman Sachs director was convicted of leaking secrets about the company to Raj Rajaratnam, a hedge fund manager. Gupta, also the former head of the consulting firm McKinsey & Company, was swept up in an insider-trading crackdown of 69 influential individuals.

UPDATE: A judge rejected a sentence of community service, instead giving Gupta two years in prison and ordering him to pay a $5 million fine, Reuters reports.

This the same as the Catholic Church selling indulgences, a Get-Out-Of-Sin-Free Card just for the rich. He broke the law, whose limits were set for people just like him. His philanthropy is disingenuous and stems from his corruption; he's not learning anything with a slap on the wrist.

One question is he doing it out of the goodness of his heart or is he using it to get out of serving time for breaking the law.
