In August, we reported Andrew Rankin's conviction on ten counts of tipping under subsection 76(1) of the Securities Act. On October 27, 2005, Justice Khawly sentenced Rankin to six months in jail on each of the ten counts, to be served concurrently. OSC staff was seeking a prison sentence of between three and five years. Counsel for Rankin argued that he should receive a suspended sentence.
