What is bernie madoff's sentence?
Bernie Madoff received the maximum 150 year sentence for running a $65 billion Ponzi scheme that stole money from thousands of clients. The sentence was 10 times longer than what the defense lawyers had asked for. No family, friends or colleagues had submitted letters to the judge during the sentencing phase to attest to his character. Bernie’s daughter-in-law has written the book “The End of Normal,” detailing the events from her perspective, including the suicide of her husband and Bernie’s son, Mark.
