A former Primary Global Research expert networking consultant, Jiau was arrested in December on charges that she sold information about Nvidia and Marvell Technology Group to hedge funds. She was denied bail on the grounds that she might ba flight risk. Her family lives in Taiwan.
"It's just one-side story now you hear," she said during the call.
Wachtel describes her as so soft-spoken she was sometimes drowned out by the background noise of her fellow prisoners.
"Do people want me to win or lose?" she asked Wachtel.
Jiau is apparently hoping that a New York lawyer will take her case pro bono. She is currently represented by a lawyer in California, but believes she needs a New York lawyer to handle the case.
