Norman Hsu Gets 24 Years for Multiple Schemes
It took a while, but Norman Hsu is going to prison. He's been convicted of numerous crimes including campaign finance violations (involving shady fundraising for prominent Democrats including Hillary Clinton, who despite widespread hopes was never implicated in his crimes) and Ponzi scheming. The judge sent Hsu away for 24 years today. Hsu apologized for his "terrible mistake" and was taken off.
In 2007, while out on bail, he made a frantic getaway, from which he was quickly retrieved. It is doubtful that Hsu, who is 58, will get away this time.
