Prosecutors want Rajaratnam’s medical issues made public

The convicted inside trader is requesting a more lenient sentence due to his health

Federal prosecutors are asking a judge to make Raj Rajaratnam, who was convicted in May of insider trading, provide additional information on his medical issues.

Prosecutors had requested that the Galleon Group co-founder be sentenced to 19 1/2 to 24 1/2 years in prison—a term Rajaratnam said was “grotesquely severe,” but not uncommon these days, as more corporate criminals are seeing tougher sentences.
