When last we checked in on Sergey Aleynikov, the former Goldman Sachs computer programmer convicted of stealing the confidential source code of Goldman's high-speed trading system, prosecutors were debating with his lawyers over his sentence.
Prosecutors were arguing for 10 years, while Aleynikov’s lawyer was asking for probation — no jail time at all.

Well, the sentence came down Friday afternoon — and the prosecutors, well, won. U.S. District Judge Denise Cote sentenced Aleynikov to more than eight years behind bars.
