Prosecutors find more Madoff assets, including $30 million in loans to sons


The public's been screaming that prosecutors should try to recover assets from Madoff's relatives, including his sons. While his sons have not been charged with any crimes, prosecutors told a judge Tuesday that they want to seize jewelry, business interests and more than $30 million dollars that Bernard Madoff and his wife loaned to their sons, according to the Associated Press.

This move was made in one of two motions filed yesterday. The second motion stated that Madoff should remain behind bars before sentencing, since he has a strong motive to flee. Assistant U.S. Attorney Lisa Baroni told the AP that Madoff, "managed to perpetrate an enormous fraud, over the course of decades; his ingenuity should not be underestimated." Federal prosecutors moved to freeze Ruth Madoff's assets earlier this week.
