FINALLY! Now, they should start investigating his wife and his sons and get a cell ready for them too! Don't tell me that they didn't know what was going on! Take away ALL of their possessions/homes/boats/cars/antiques etc. SELL everything and pay back the INNOCENT people who invested either directly with him or through some secondary agent. Something tells me that some investors knew that something wasn't kosher to receive such a big return on their investment while others were most likely not as well informed or astute.

Anyway, I'm glad they threw the book at him!

This is too big of a scheme for one person to operate alone.
Lets keep investigating, and see who else is involved.
Maybe Ruth and the kids aren't as innocent as they pretends to be.
Rot in jail Bernie. You got what you deserve.

I think the idiots that gave him their life savings are to blame just as much as he is. DUH! Like you can possibly get that kind of return on your money. Why are people so f-ing stupid?

Wow his exit from prison will be in a pine box. Justice is served, somewhat. You don't think this man REALLY did ALL of this by his little lonesome, do you?

HaHa!!!    

He is going to be in a luxury jail for white collar criminals with 3 meals a day and his wife will be homeless.
This is not justice. This is a joke.
He should be in a prison with true felons.

What if Madoff has a terminal, inoperable cancer and that's why he took the plea? He takes the blame & his 2 sons and everyone else gets off free and clear. Mark my words: Bernie won't do a year in prison. He'll die while all the money is secure somewhere far, far away from the U.S. and others hands.

He was no dummy. So his name is shamed and his sons can't get jobs. They have the money under the mattress. Don't cry over Ruth either. Whoever Bernie was funding will take care of the family. The only thing that the sons are upset about is the ridicule.Their shame is fake shame.

now thats what I call justice! Sometimes the legal system can suck and be totally un-fair but at least they got it right this time.
