Well, He Could Have Gotten Life!

Here is Business Week on the Madoff sentence of 150 years. An excerpt:

Ira Lee Sorkin, Madoff's attorney, acknowledged his client as a "deeply flawed individual" but said he is nonetheless human and asked the judge for a 12-year sentence. Sorkin cited Madoff's health and decision to step forward to disclose the fraud seven months ago as reasons that argued for a shorter sentence.

Twelve years? Sorkin must have practiced saying that in front of the mirror.
