      New sheriff of Wall St. is racking up insider trading convictions

      Preet Bharara has carved out a reputation for being a tough prosecutor who has overseen some of the most high-profile white-collar criminal cases since the 1980s.

      excerpt:

      Bharara, 44, has carved out a reputation for being a tough prosecutor who has overseen some of the most high-profile white-collar criminal cases since the 1980s. His quest to bring Wall Street wrongdoers to justice has claimed 71 insider trading convictions since taking office three years ago.

      He's an unlikely standard bearer in a role once held by bigger-than-life characters such as Rudy Giuliani and Eliot Spitzer.

      The latest chief Wall Street scourge is a soft-spoken native of India who grew up in the suburbs of New Jersey. He says he has an indulgence for listening to Bruce Springsteen, and that he wanted to become a lawyer after reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" as a teenager.
