Judge sentenced Bernard Madoff to 150 years in prison, while his wife is sentenced to a life of luxury with 2.5 million dollars in her pocket free and clear. That is 2.5 million dollars more than many of Madoff’s victims will receive after all the dust clears.
With billions of dollars still unaccounted for, I wonder who has accesses to those funds and who else was involved in this crime? Did Madoff plead guilty so quickly in order to protect those others involved in his crime? How much did his wife and sons know of the crime and how much were they involved? If I were the Feds, I make sure to continue the investigation and take a real close look at Madoff’s family and close friends.
In either case Madoff got less than he deserves and his wife and family got more than they should have.
