On October 13, Zachary Zwerko, a senior finance analyst at a pharmaceutical company, was sentenced to 37 months in prison for his role in an insider trading scheme.  Zwerko passed material nonpublic information related to the acquisitions of pharmaceutical companies to a co-conspirator on multiple occasions.  The co-conspirator then traded in securities based on that information.  Zwerko and his co-conspirators at times communicated via disposable cell phones to conceal their actions.  Zwerko received approximately $57,000 from his coconspirator, who received trading profits of at least $737,000.  U.S. v. Post, 14-cr-00715 (S.D.N.Y).  DOJ Press Release
