Bernie Madoff Gets 150 Years
Madoff will never see daylight again, unless it’s in a prison yard.
“I cannot offer any excuse for my behavior,” Madoff was reported to have said in court this morning. “I made a terrible mistake.”
Federal prosecutors had requested the maximum 150 year-term. Madoff’s attorney, Ira Sorkin, said his client deserved a much more lenient 12-year sentence for, in part, cooperating with authorities and citing Madoff’s limited life expectancy.
