Richard Baldwin was sentenced by Judge Christopher Hehir, who said the jeweler was convicted on “compelling evidence” of “extremely sophisticated” money laundering, according to a statement issued Tuesday by the Financial Conduct Authority, which prosecuted the case. The charges were part of a wider insider-trading probe, code-named Operation Tabernula, that resulted in the conviction of a Deutsche Bank AG broker.
