Martha Stewart hardly cleaned up with the $45,000 she made from selling her shares in biotech firm ImClone in 2001. But a jury in 2004 found claims she had a sell order if the shares dipped below $60 too neat. Instead, they went for the less tidy tale that she acted on a tip from her broker, who also handled the account of ImClone founder Samuel Waksal, who, it should be noted, pleaded guilty to securities fraud related to the company's stock in 2002. She served five months in a West Virginia federal prison camp.
