Four Former Senior Executives of Wilmington Trust Convicted by Jury in Federal District Court
Former top executives of Delaware's Wilmington Trust, including its President and its Executive Vice President, were found guilty of conspiracy to defraud the United States, securities fraud, making false statements to federal agencies, and falsifying banking records. The defendants conspired to conceal the truth about Wilmington Trust's failing financial health by omitting information about past-due loans in reports to federal regulators and the investing public.
