Former McAfee GC Acquitted on Backdating Charges

After a two-and-a-half week trial, former McAfee general counsel Kent Roberts was acquitted Friday of criminal charges stemming from backdated stock options.

On charges of mail fraud, Juror William West told reporters the jury decided that although Roberts knew his stock options were tainted years after they were changed, the government didn't prove that he meant to commit a crime.
