Conviction overturned for woman who aided 'squawk-box' prosecutors

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/03/2014 - 01:18
By Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) - (This June 30 story has been corrected to fix last name of lawyer Marjorie Peerce in last paragraph. Corrected story moved on July 1) A U.S. judge has vacated the conviction of a former Merrill Lynch administrative assistant who lied to a grand jury under pressure from her boss but then helped convict six former brokers and traders of generating illegal profits with information they overheard on a "squawk box." Judge Leo Glasser of U.S. District Court in Brooklyn took the extraordinarily rare step of vacating the guilty plea of Irene Santiago, who admitted in 2005 to testifying falsely before a grand jury and agreed to cooperate with government investigators. In a ruling released on Friday, Glasser said it would be an injustice to leave Santiago with a conviction after the six defendants had their records scrubbed clean and their rights restored.
