Former Microsoft manager Brian Jorgenson explains why he took actions that may lead to insider-trading charges

My colleague Mike Carter has a story running in today’s Seattle Times about Brian Jorgenson, a former Microsoft senior manager who expects to be charged today with at least one federal felony count involving insider trading.

In an interview with Carter, Jorgenson explains why he tipped a friend to nonpublic, proprietary Microsoft financial information that allowed his friend to make an estimated $200,000 in the stock market.

You can read the story here.

[Update: Brian Jorgenson and his friend, Sean Stokke, were charged on Dec. 19, 2013. Reporter Mike Carter's story on the charges is here.]
