Bernie Madoff’s Sentence: Part II

Yesterday, I said that I thought Bernie Madoff’s sentence was over the top given that he plead guilty. The Wall Street Journal Law Blog has a post called “Nobody… Is Every Going to Plead Guilty Again.” This is a more thoughtful analysis of my drive-by thoughts yesterday. Madoff absolutely must go to jail. But a guilty plea plus a lack of causing physical harm to me does not equate to 150 years.
