The prosecution wraps up closing statements in the trial against five former aides to Ponzi schemer Bernard Madoff. Madoff’s former secretary, his former head of operations, an account manager and two computer programmers are on trial.
New York financier Bernard Madoff’s former right-hand man summed up his boss’ arrest exactly five years ago with two words: “Madoff Implodes.”
The trial against five of Bernard Madoff’s former employees continued Wednesday with testimony from consultants who investigated the firm following Madoff’s arrest.
FBI Agent Theodore Cacioppi said he interviewed Bernard Madoff for about an hour before arresting him. The office was then placed under surveillance so evidence could be removed.
