Here’s three important news stories from this week:
Former Goldman Sachs and New York Federal Reserve “employee” (i.e. a corrupt banker) Rohit Bansal will serve no jail time for pleading guilty to “obtaining confidential information” (i.e. stealing, violating privacy laws and SEC regulations). Instead, he was sentenced to 300 hours of community service and fined $5,000 by U.S. Magistrate Judge Gabriel Gorenstein in Manhattan. He was also “banned for life” by the banking community.
