So six years for perpetrating a $260 million fraud. Not bad work for only 6 years.
Does the court even begin to realize how many years this fraud may have taken away from the poor smucks who invested their hard-earned money in Southwestern?
Sure, investing in the markets is a gamble and those who participate should understand there's risk of losing everything, but when such a fraud is committed by those who are supposed to be trusted, then 6 years for stealing who knows how many years for victims that were tricked and robbed of their livelihoods, is nothing IMO.
6 years is not only a slap in the face to the victims, but it's quite enticing to any other potential 'crooks-in-waiting'. JMO
