Don knows that;if he confesses while Dana keeps silent, he will receive a 1-month jail;sentence. He also knows that if Dana confesses and he keeps silent, he will;receive a 12-month jail sentence. If neither of them confesses, there will be;insufficient evidence to convict either of insider trading, but there is enough;evidence to convict each of them individually of obstructing justice, which;carries a 2-month sentence. If both of them confess, they will both serve a;3-month jail sentence.
