Six years ago Thursday Bernard Madoff was arrested in what investigators discovered to be the largest Ponzi scheme in American history, one that stole more than $18 billion from investors across the country. While Madoff was given to what amounts to a life sentence in 2009, the Department of Justice is still handing down punishments to several of those associated with the scheme. The latest group of ex-Madoff employees received sentences just this week, while another former insider will hear her sentence on Dec. 15.
