Khan, a one-time technology company executive who became a key FBI informant in the insider-trading case against hedge-fund manager Raj Rajaratnam, was sentenced to 12 months in prison on Thursday. Defense lawyers had sought five years of probation for Khan, 58, who pleaded guilty in 2009 in U.S. District Court in Manhattan to securities fraud, obstruction of justice and conspiracy.
