This is the case of an old dude who stole money. He confessed and turned himself in, but gets 150 years?
In pronouncing the sentence â€” the maximum he could have handed down â€” Judge Denny Chin turned aside Mr. Madoffâ€™s own assertions of remorse and rejected the suggestion from Mr. Madoffâ€™s lawyers that there was a sense of â€œmob vengeanceâ€ surrounding calls for a long prison term. Mr. Madoffâ€™s crimes, the judge said, were â€œextraordinarily evil.â€
As a lawyer I know it’s disingenuous to compare the two, but Donte Stallworth *killed* a guy while drunk driving and got a month in jail!
I guess it makes me happy that I live in a country where even federal judges in criminal court have no sense of what evil really is.
