I always get a charge out of watching these cases progress. First, they unequivocally state the charges have no merit and they'll fight it to the end... once they read the discovery, things get a little quieter in the camp of the defense... a year or so later, a deal is cut and they quietly plead guilty and do their time. Even more interesting for those who understand the federal sentencing guidelines, is trying to understand their relatively small sentence, until we hear at sentencing how the defendant 'co-operated' with authorities... leaving us to wonder, who'd they 'rat out' and when will those indictments come? It's amazing how most men will destroy others lives in order to save a few years of their freedom. And we call Madoff a monster?
