Bernard Madoff received a 150 year prison sentence today for his multi-billion-dollar Ponzi scheme.
Last week, a judge issued a preliminary forfeiture order valued at $171 billion, stripping Madoff of his personal property, including real estate, investments, and $80 million in assets his wife claimed. The order left Ruth Madoff with $2.5 million, according to the Associated Press.
