Expert-Network Founder Who Refused FBI Wire Expects Arrest

John Kinnucan, the expert-networking firm founder whose public refusal of an FBI request to wear a wire presaged a dozen insider-trading arrests, said he expects to be charged himself.

Kinnucan, who runs Broadband Research LLC in Portland, Oregon, may have good reason to fear the worst. Federal prosecutors in New York disclosed in court papers that they had a court-authorized wiretap on his mobile phone in connection with their case against Donald Longueuil, a former SAC Capital Advisors LP portfolio manager who pleaded guilty to insider-trading charges on April 28 in Manhattan federal court.
