There must be some angry investors behind bars.
Bernie Madoff, the financier who stole billions of dollars from individuals and charities, got a dose of karma behind bars and was beaten so severely he suffered facial fractures, broken ribs and a collapsed lung, according to ABC 11 in Durham, N.C.
Madoff was rushed to Duke University Medical Center in Durham last Friday and released two days later.
But according to the Madoff’s lawyer, Ira Sorkin, there was no assault. The Associated Press report that Sorking said his client “had some dizzy spells and some high blood pressure.”
Either way, The 71-year old fraudster, who was imprisoned last March, is now in a medical clinic at the prison in Butner, NC, where he is serving a 150 year sentence for his part in a $65 billion Ponzi scheme.
