Madoff pleaded guilty.
The trial is over. He’s off to jail. He actually saved us taxpayers some money in legal fees, court costs, not to mention lost productivity as we all tune in to the trial (which would have been a circus.)
Granted, it doesn’t begin to make up for his crime. That’s why he’s in jail.
(Hey, Bernie! If you’d been a REALLY clever criminal you’d have stolen money in such a way that they named the scheme after you. But no, you’re just another Ponzi-wannabe…)
