Prosecutors in the criminal trial of former Bank of America broker Theodore C. Sihpol III rested their case last Monday after calling a human resources executive as their final witness, who testified that Sihpol's compensation rose sharply in the years he allegedly helped New Jersey hedge fund Canary Capital make improper trades.

Shon Manasco, the BoA executive, said Sihpol took in slightly less than $700,000 in compensation in 2003, his last year on the job. That compared with roughly $500,000 in 2002 and $165,000 in 2001, Manasco told the court.
