Bernie Madoff died in prison at the age of 82. He was sentenced to 150 years in prison for his Ponzi scheme that ripped off $65 billion from investors.
Madoff's scheme left more than 37,000 victims in 136 countries. He destroyed his family, as well as the many that trusted him.
Yet, what I find most sad is the many retirees who trusted him with their life savings and now have nothing. As a retiree myself, I can feel their pain.
In the end I guess finally justice was served.
