    No big surprise, everyone was predicting he'd get that. I can't imagine facing the rest of my life in prison. God he's a dumbass.

    Geezus.

    Where did all that money go?



    Is he going to work off paying all the people he ripped off by making license plates and hemp jewelry?

    Time off for good behavior, he could get out in 50 years.


    But I could see him doing the same thing Mostel and Wilder did at the end of "The Producers." He will probably corner all the cigarettes in San Quentin in a year.

    The discussion at lunch included sentiments that he shouldn't be sentenced to more than 40 years because he likely will not live that long. (I think he's 70 something already.) I say it makes no difference how long he's expected to live...he should spend all his future time alive in prison. The sentence should fit the crime. He should have been sentenced to 200 years.

    I understand too that the government has seized the property that would have kept Mrs. Madoff living in luxury as her husband wears an orange jump suit and works out with his friends in the local gym. Maybe she can get herself a nice double-wide and a job as a greeter at Wal-Mart.

    I wonder what kind of special treatment he will get from the guards willing to accept bribes from the money that Bernie has stashed away over the years. Maybe he'll have a private penthouse and swimming pool built for himself.

    I think he could be up for parole in 105 years. :lol:
    I do believe the judge is sending a message to the scamers that this isn't going to be tolerated any longer, and this is what you'll get.

    The crime of the century.. His family will be hurting financially. They can't even get jobs at this point, nobody trusts them.

    Yeah, his family, well, were they 100% clueless to what he was doing?

    Now...what about all the other families he ripped off? Will they be compensated in any way?
