Ex-Criminals on Payroll in Fiction and Reality
Recently released inmate Jérôme Kerviel scored a new job. The Société Générale trader was arrested for abusing his knowledge of the French bank’s electronic risk controls, which became a trading scandal that cost the French bank about $7.1 billion. According to the New York Times Kerviel started training at Lemaire Consultants & Associates, which specializes in computer security and system development.

he didn't steal the $$$ but his sneaky behavior and information sharing cost the 7.1b...the liabilities still fall on the bank for responsibility. I read the rest of the story and it's actually to say your resume and what you do can land you a position in a completely different field :)

Agreed, there are worse wrongs - like if the bum actually found a job that would make him able to pay back 7.1 Billion dollars.

WOW-well if he's a computer genius then I totally see why companies are looking at him...especially if they hare having him help eliminate some of their security weaknesses. It may be wrong but there are so many things wrong that are worst than this.

People with imaginations and too much time on their hands are either thinking up virii or worms or worse, OR if caught, go to work for the Computer Industry in computer security.If he's found guilty, he can repay what he owes with income from his current job and maybe a few thousand hours of community service at the homeless shelter.

It seems really wrong to give him this job while he's still under investigation; now he and Lamaire can profit further from what he did. The state should at least have had an opportunity to include Kerviel working with authorities as part of a sentence. Too, I envision a scenario where the company tries to limit testimony in any trial because it risks revealing their corporate secrets.
