The boyfriend of an ex-Disney employee was sentenced to two years and three months for trying to sell access to Mickey Mouse’s financial secrets.

Prosecutors contend that Yonni Sebbag, the boyfriend of former Walt Disney Co. administrative assistant Bonnie Hoxie, contacted dozens of hedge funds and investment companies in an effort to sell “insider trading secrets” as a means of supporting his gambling addiction.

The FBI was alerted upon learning that Sebbag offered $15,000 for the information. 

“It was an act of desperation,” Sebbag’s lawyer, Steven Kartagener, claimed. “It had to fail from the outset.”
