NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It was a bizarre end to a legal case involving a Goldman Sachs computer programmer.

As WCBS 880’s Monica Miller reported, a Manhattan jury found Sergey Aleynikov guilty of copying a large chunk of a secret computer code during his last day of work at Goldman Sachs that he planned to bring to his new employer.

This is the second time the 45-year-old Russian native was found guilty. Aleynikov was convicted of federal charges in 2010, but an appeals court cleared him two years later and freed him from prison.

Six months after his release, Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance unveiled state charges against him.

The case was decided by 10 jurors instead of 12 after a juror told the court she feared a fellow juror had poisoned her, partly because some avocado was missing from her lunch. The judge said her claim was unfounded and dismissed them both.
