French prosecutors on Thursday demanded that Jerome Kerviel serve at least four years in jail for rogue trading in the scandal that almost brought down Societe Generale bank.

State prosecutors Jean-Michel Aldebert and Philippe Bourion called for a five-year sentence including four years without parole for Kerviel, who is charged with breach of trust, forgery and entering false data into computers.

"Never has the criminal definition of breach of trust been so well-named," Aldebert told the court in Paris on the penultimate day of the three-week trial.
