Parole terms were tightened for insider trading.

January 30, 1986

The U.S. Parole Commission adopted more stringent guidelines that treat the crime of insider trading in securities as a more serious offense equal to fraud and racketeering. Under guidelines that go into effect April 1, an insider-trading crime with an economic impact of more than $500,000 will require 40 to 52 months of prison time served; a crime involving between $100,000 and $500,000 will require 24 to 36 months, and between $20,000 and $100,000, 12 to 18 months.
