The former CEO and a former finance executive of Autonomy have been charged with lying about the United Kingdom software company's financial condition before it was taken over by Hewlett-Packard in 2011.
The charges, which were filed overnight and follow a six-year investigation, include 14 counts of conspiracy and fraud and carry a maximum penalty of 20 years in jail.
Hewlett-Packard acquired Autonomy in 2011 for $10.3bn and later had to write down the value by $8.8bn based on what it claims were false and misleading accounts.
Tech giant HP Inc has reported strong Q4 revenues of $15.4bn, yielding it a tidy $1.5bn in net income.
"HP has sought to blame Autonomy for its own crippling errors, and has falsely accused Mike Lynch to cover its own tracks", said Lynch's lawyers, Chris Morvillo of Clifford Chance and Reid Weingarten of Steptoe & Johnson.
The indictment alleges that Mr Lynch conspired with individuals to engage in a fraudulent scheme to "deceive purchasers and sellers of Autonomy securities and HP about the true performance of Autonomy's business, financial condition and prospects for growth".
