This promises to be a Wall Street trial unlike any other.

The case is as much family tragedy as courtroom drama.

Bob Stewart was always there for his son - as a soccer coach and Boy Scout leader, as the proud parent of a Yale graduate and then an investment banker.

Bloomberg News reports that now it may be his own words that send his son to prison.

Sean Stewart, an ex-managing director at Perella Weinberg Partners, goes before a jury on July 25 on insider-trading charges. It promises to be a Wall Street trial unlike any other. A key piece of government evidence is a secret recording not of a trader or corporate insider - but of a father allegedly confiding in a friend that his son slipped him illicit tips.

The case is as much family tragedy as courtroom drama. Bob pleaded guilty to a felony, Sean could be jailed, and Bob’s bond with Sean - “as a role model, mentor and friend” - is “irreparably damaged,” as Bob’s lawyers told the judge who sentenced him in May to probation.
