Sanjay Kumar gets 12 year setence, eight million dollar fine. Meanwhile, his old boss seems to have gotten away scot free.

CA - where software goes to die. Wang will likely be frozen out of lots of potential board positions because of his involvement in this mess, even if he's not charged with anything.

But really - it's hard to feel sorry for two rich guys. Though it is nice to see those hiring quotas are finally working for corrupt executives.

Well, to be fair, his old boss is stuck with a PR nightmare of a slightly different (and granted, vastly less financially injurious to his investors) kind.

Looks like Harold will have to go to White Castle all by himself.

Early in my career I worked in the systems software business. In fact, CA bought my company and laid me off. So, good for you, Mr. Kumar. Wang should have gotten it, too. My experience is that American business is rotten from the inside out with corruption across the board, but I'll take some solace in this.

Funny because Wang just sentenced himself to 15 years and a 67.5M fine by signing the supremely mediocre Rick DiPietro until Jesus comes back.
