NY jury finds ex-hedge fund managers guilty of insider trading after monthlong trial

A New York jury has found two former hedge fund managers guilty of insider trading charges.

The verdict was returned late Monday against Todd Newman and Anthony Chiasson (kee-AY'-sohn).

Newman is a former portfolio manager with Diamondback Capital Management. The government had accused him of making about $2.8 million from illegal tips.

Chiasson is a co-founder of hedge fund Level Global Investors. The government says he earned about $50 million illegally by trading on a tip received about Dell Inc. stock in 2008.

The men denied insider trading. They say they believed they were getting information honestly.

The monthlong trial is part of the government's five-year crackdown on insider trading.
