NEW YORK, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- Yonni Sebbag, a Moroccan man accused of trying to sell Disney's financial statements to hedge funds, has pleaded guilty to felony charges, court papers say.
Sebbag and his girlfriend, Bonnie Hoxie, were arrested in May after FBI agents, tipped off by various hedge funds, set up a sting operation to catch the couple in action.
Hoxie, at the time, was the secretary to Zenia Mucha, head of corporate communications at Disney, the New York Daily News reported Monday.
Allegedly, Sebbag sent e-mails to about 20 hedge funds offering them second quarter financial statements in advance of their public release. UPI
