150 years in the slammer

Finally, Bernie Madoff got sentenced by judge Denny Chin to the maximum sentence of 150 years in prison for his huge Ponzi Scheme. Hopefully without possibility of parole. Hopefully in a maximum security prison, although this is unlikely, since all white collar criminals end up at so called country clubs. I think the sentence is fair. Other crooks that have bilked the people out of their money, like that Sanford guy should get the same. Make it forever.
Madoff's family must and should surrender all their lavish assets and live in shame for the rest of their lives.
A harpe un a shande.

    Madoff could have gotten off with much less if he would have pleaded not guilty and gone through an extended trial with better lawyers.

  2. Which would have showed him for even more of a scoundrel, like the rest of them sundry white collar crooks, like Jeff Skilling and such, who according to the New York Times got much less time in jail.
    At least Madoff had the good grace to admit it, although some think he took the rap to protect his family.
    Still, a harpe un a shande.
