The Wall Street Journal is reporting that 30-year-old Shalin Jhaveri sobbed in court Thursday as he apologized for betraying the trust of his former employer and his family. The federal judge assigned to the case sentenced him to one-year in prison but he is reportedly being released due to his having already served the sentence in upstate New York. We blogged about this case earlier here: http://wombletradesecrets.blogspot.com/2010/11/bristol-myers-squibb-employee-pleads.html
He pleaded guilty last year to the thefts and e-mailing samples to an undercover FBI informant posing as a potential investor in the company he hoped to form.
Jhaveri has a doctorate in chemistry from Cornell University. He's expected to be deported to India.
