Jerome Kerviel, a former Societe Generale junior trader was convicted on all counts in one of the history's biggest rogue scandals, sentenced to three years in prison and ordered to pay his former employer $6.5bn in damages.
So, was Kerviel a villain or a victim of his bank's greed? How many Jerome Kerviel's are out there practicing risky trading? And could newly-introduced regulations stop these tradings?
