Madoff Sentenced

Last December saw the biggest Ponzi scheme in history come to light, orchestrated by one Bernard Madoff.  Since then Law.com has maintained a Madoff Watch page, keeping up to date with the case. Yesterday, Madoff was finally sentenced, receiving the maximum 150 years in prison, the longest sentence ever given for a white collar crime.  With billions of dollars lost (final numbers still aren’t available), some feel that 150 years, though his life expectance is only another dozen years, is a symbolic gesture of justice.  For more look at Law.com (which includes links to other interesting documents), the New York Times, or the Wall Street Journal.
