Prosecutors want former KPMG auditing partner Scott London to serve three years in federal prison for giving confidential information about his firm's clients to a friend, who used the tips to make more than $1 million in illegal stock-trading profits. London pleaded guilty to insider-trading last year and was fired by KPMG. He is scheduled to be sentenced April 21 at U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. Asst. U.S. Atty. James A. Bowman said in a sentencing memo that London had participated in a “calculated and corrupt arrangement” that victimized the companies whose secrets he was paid to protect.

The arraignment for Scott London, the former KPMG auditor accused of participating in an insider trading scheme that netted over $1 million, was postponed Monday to an unknown date. It was pushed back because federal prosecutors expect to move the matter before a different judge -- U.S. District Court Judge George H. Wu, who is overseeing the case for Bryan Shaw, the other defendant involved in the alleged crime. The U.S. Department of Justice charged London with one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud through insider trading.

Moments after pleading guilty to an insider-trading charge, former KPMG partner Scott London struggled to explain the conduct that ruined his career and is very likely to send him to federal prison. “It was probably the worst day of my life,” London said in an interview in the hallway outside the courtroom of U.S. District Judge George H. Wu, who is scheduled to sentence London on Oct. 21. “Imagine what you do, you do it for 30 years, you go to school for it and in a matter of weeks it's all gone,” London said.

It's the kind of audacious but small-stakes insider trading that normally wouldn't have merited much attention. Golfing buddies Scott London and Bryan Shaw netted just $1.3 million, a blip in a world where Wall Street kingpins pocket hundreds of millions in ill-gotten gains. The two men made one misstep after another. Their haplessness virtually guaranteed they'd get nailed, experts said. The scope of their ill-fated caper was made clear Thursday when federal prosecutors in Los Angeles filed a criminal charge against London, alleging that he passed insider tips to Shaw from 2010 to 2013.
