Protecting your rights is becoming more difficult for Michigan Criminal Defense lawyers.

Hedge-Fund Mogul Raj Rajaratnam Sunk by Wiretap Evidence
Last month, a U.S. District Court jury in New York convicted Raj Rajaratnam, co-founder of hedge giant The Galleon Group, of fraud and conspiracy after two and one-half weeks of deliberation. As the principal player in the nation's largest illegal stock-tipping case since Ivan Boesky in the 1980s, Rajaratnam may be compelled to surrender millions in profits gained from his illegal activities. He also faces potentially 25 years in prison when he is sentenced on July 29.
