Update: CNBC has linky to the complaint by SEC here

…Mozilo sold hundreds of millions in Countrywide stock in late 2006 and 2007 and is accused of remaining publicly upbeat about his company’s prospects during a period when he knew things weren’t going well for the firm. The SEC put the tally of his profits at $140 million.

Countrywide became the nation’s largest single home lender during the housing boom and was acquired by Bank of America after much of its business deteriorated.

On the criminal side, an investigation of financial wrongdoing is ongoing at Countrywide involving some of the company’s high-level execs. Details on that probe are unknown.
