Better still, I used to work for this guy:

Gregory Reyes' Conviction: Setting The Bar For Other Trials? - Tech Check with Jim Goldman - MSNBC.com

A billionaire and made Fortunes top 40 net worth under 40 years old article.

Might only do a few years. Might do 10 or more. Although he's still trying to weasel a new trial claiming he didnt understand the securities rules he was breaking.
