The Corruption of Sid Gilman
That suggestion comes too late to save Sid Gilman's reputation, but in disgrace, he may still do the world of law enforcement a bit of good. His last public appearance is scheduled to be to testify against Martoma in federal court in Manhattan.
Bharara's case against Martoma depends heavily on Gilman's testimony, and he is likely to face a fierce cross-examination. There, with the world watching, the full story of his relationship with his onetime "pupil" will be laid bare.
Martoma's attorneys may well try to turn the tables and paint Gilman as the seducer. But WSU's Henning believes that Gilman, at least initially, was the victim--and that he now understands the gravity of his betrayal. At some point, he says, the once-distinguished physician must have "had an epiphany"--and realized "Oh my God, what did I do?"
