50 Years For Evil Lawyer Rothstein

Breaking: South Florida disgraced and disbarred former lawyer Scott Rothstein just got sentenced to 50 years in federal prison for masterminding a billion dollar scam using his law firm.

This means that even with time off for good behavior, Rothstein will be more than 90 years old when he is eligible for release.

Perhaps the "essentially life" standard enunciated by New York federal judge Jed Rakoff (in sentencing 59-year-old Marc Dreier to 20 years) in trying to extrapolate how long Dreier was likely to live was modified to be overly optimistic regarding Rothstein.

One note -- Rothstein's crimes included forging the signature of federal judges on purported orders. Serious crime in and of itself showing a complete disregard for the judicial process.
