Bernie Madoff's Brother Is Headed To Prison


NPR's business news starts with hard time for another Madoff.


INSKEEP: This time, it's Bernie Madoff's brother heading to prison. A federal judge sentenced Peter Madoff to the maximum sentence, 10 years, after he pleaded guilty to charges including conspiracy. Mr. Madoff maintains that his first knowledge of his brother's massive Ponzi scheme came only just before Bernie Madoff's arrest. The sentencing judge said that story was quote, "frankly, not believable."
