Imprisoned financier Bernard Madoff won't seek to attend his son's funeral out of consideration for the privacy of his son's wife and four children, his lawyer said Monday.
Disgraced financier Bernard Madoff's eldest son hanged himself by a dog leash in his apartment Saturday, exactly two years after his father's arrest in a multibillion-dollar Ponzi scheme that swindled thousands of investors of their life savings.
"We won't be appealing the sentence," Madoff's lawyer, Ira Sorkin, said Thursday.
Attorney Ira Sorkin said Madoff instead will mourn privately at the North Carolina prison where he's serving a 150-year sentence for his fraud conviction in what authorities have called history's largest Ponzi scheme.
