#AceWorldNews – USA:May.01: A jury has convicted a former Goldman Sachs programmer of stealing the investment firm’s high-frequency trading code.

The panel found Sergey Aleynikov guilty on only one count of stealing “secret scientific material” from the bank, after reaching a split decision on a similar count. Aleynikov, a dual citizen of Russia and the US, was charged with stealing the computer code as he prepared to leave the investment bank for a trading start-up in Chicago in 2009.
