Kent Roberts, former general counsel of McAfee, is the next likely casualty in the ongoing stock option backdating embarrassment. Lawyers familiar with the case said Roberts will probably be indicted within the next month. The main issue, the lawyers said, is an options grant Roberts himself received which carries a date prosecutors suspect he altered. Roberts would be the first lawyer charged by San Francisco federal prosecutors in their broad options investigation, and the second GC indicted nationwide.
