Oliver Curtis free after a year behind bars

Former banker Oliver Curtis is set to be released this morning from a NSW jail after serving one year behind bars for insider trading.

The husband of high-profile Sydney publicist Roxy Jacenko was jailed in June 2016 after being found guilty of conspiring to commit 45 illicit trades through which the 31-year-old and then-friend John Hartman swindled $1.43 million.

The Supreme Court trial was told Curtis made trades between May 27 and June 2008 based on confidential information that Hartman possessed as an employee of Orion Asset Management.


The judge set a maximum of two years in Cooma Correctional Centre but ordered he be released on recognisance after serving a year.
