Manatt’s Kenneth Julian, a partner in the firm’s investigations and white collar defense practice, spoke to Law360 on securing a home confinement sentence for his client, former MLB player Doug DeCinces, who was able to successfully avoid time in prison in connection with a 2017 insider trading conviction.

According to Law360, U.S. District Judge Andrew J. Guilford sentenced DeCinces to a day in prison, satisfied by time served, and two years of supervised release, which includes eight months of home confinement.

Julian said he is “very pleased with the sentence,” and that “DeCinces has lived a life full of service to others, and it counted for something and moved the needle at sentencing.”

At DeCinces’ sentencing hearing on August 12, MLB Hall of Famer Rod Carew gave a statement to the court praising DeCinces for his friendship and support when Carew was ill.
