Douglas Faneuil (FAN'-yool) pleaded guilty as part of a deal to testify about the sale of ImClone shares last December. That was just before the stock plunged on news that the Food and Drug Administration would not review its highly touted cancer drug. Stewart has said she had an agreement to sell the shares if they dipped below 60 dollars and that she did nothing wrong. Faneuil reportedly accepted New York Knicks' tickets in exchange for hiding his knowledge from investigators of the alleged insider stock deal involving Stewart. Court papers say he also received an extra week of vacation and a free airline ticket.
