Five former aides to investment manager Bernard Madoff were convicted on Monday of charges that they helped their boss conceal his massive Ponzi scheme for years.
A federal jury in New York found back-office director Daniel Bonventre, portfolio managers Annette Bongiorno and Joann Crupi,
and computer programmers Jerome O’Hara and George Perez guilty on all counts, including securities fraud and conspiracy to defraud clients.
That’s fourteen total who have either been found or pleaded guilty in aiding the thoroughly execrable Madoff.
If only we could make that sort of activity illegal in the government sector.
