Last week Bernard Madoff and his lawyers suggested that he only recieve 12 years in prison for his $50 Billion investment fraud.
Well he was sentenced today and lets just say a judge and jury gave him one of the more resounding “For Sure NOT’s” of all time
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) — A federal judge sentenced Bernard Madoff, the convicted mastermind of the largest and most sweeping Ponzi scheme ever, to the maximum sentence of 150 years in federal court Monday.
I guess the lesson here is don’t steal $50 billion and then ask people to take it easy on you. Then they get mad and send you to prison until you’re like 230 years old.
For Sure Maximum Sentence.
