A former Needham police officer was sentenced yesterday for conspiring to trade on inside information about a Massachusetts company’s planned acquisition of a California semiconductor company.
David Forte, 60, of Acton, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Allison D. Burroughs to one year of supervised release, with the first six months to be served in home confinement. Judge Burroughs also imposed a $25,000 fine. Forte was charged in January 2022 along with co-conspirators John Younis and Gregory Manning. In June 2023, Forte was convicted by a federal jury of one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud and one count of securities fraud.
