A former Morgan Stanley financial adviser who stole client data that he called 'the world’s best cold-calling list' for his job search deserves a prison sentence for his crime, prosecutors said.

Bloomberg News reports that Galen Marsh, who worked in the bank’s private wealth management division, is asking a judge to spare him from prison when he is sentenced December 17, saying he took the data to analyze client information from home so he could do a better job. The government says there’s no evidence of that.

After Marsh took the data, it was stolen from him and posted on the Internet.

Prosecutors say Marsh deserves a prison term of 30 to 37 months because he accessed confidential client accounts, conducted more than 5,900 searches and obtained information on about 730,000 customers when he was searching for a new job.
