Essay by Mark Whitacre - "When Good Leaders Lose Their Way"

Mark Whitacre, the informant from the ADM scandal, tells his story in an Essay in 45 Loy. U. Chi. L.J. 525 (2014).  He discusses three paradigms in white collar cases, including how he and "top executives (my supervisors) at ADM were very focused on the short term when we should have been focused on the long term." He discusses how he ended up in prison, despite being a whistleblower, and how he chose going to trial as opposed to taking a plea. He ends the Essay with some advice, including the importance of work-life balance.
